Parliamentary questions

E-010980-15
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Kostas Chrysogonos (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Decline in the bee population
 Answer(s) 

In 2009 the European Food Safety Authority published a study recording the decline in the bee population and suggesting concrete measures. This study was used in drawing up the European Union strategy for tackling the decline in the number of bees in 2010 which contained a series of actions to combat the phenomenon. However, despite the measures taken by the Union, this problem is becoming worse, thereby jeopardising the production of most foodstuffs.

In view of the above, will the Commission say:
1. What steps will it take to halt the worldwide decline in the bee population?
2. Will it update its 2010 strategy for tackling the decline in the number of bees (COM(2010)714 final)?
3. What incentives and what tools are provided for bee breeders to promote the breeding of bees and thus to increase the bee population?
