Parliamentary questions
3 February 2015
E-009108/2014
Answer given by Mr Andriukaitis on behalf of the Commission

There are no animal welfare specific EU rules regarding the use of animals in circuses. This issue remains under the competence of the Member States.

As a consequence the Commission has no information on the measures taken by the Member States on the ban of particular animals in circuses.
