  Andreasen, Busk, Jensen, Riis-Jørgensen and Sørensen (ELDR), in writing. (DA) The Group of the European Liberal, Democrat and Reform Party is able to support many of the proposed measures in the directive but is not in favour of its being possible to sell milk and meat from vaccinated animals within the common market on the basis of current technological capacity. We also believe that consumers are entitled to opt not to buy vaccinated meat. The change from the current policy of non-vaccination to one permitting emergency vaccination also requires the international agreement to be strengthened that guarantees full utilisation of the regionalisation principle, so that exports from EU countries not affected by foot-and-mouth disease can continue.
