Dog meat in the Philippines
Question for written answer E-012014/2011
to the Commission
Peter Skinner (S&D)
Given that the EU‑Philippine relationship will further deepen with the pending adoption of the already initialled Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA), which incorporates a five-year programme of financial assistance to the Philippines from the EU and calls for negotiations towards a Free Trade Agreement (FTA), will the Commission ensure that animal welfare issues are raised within the context of the FTA negotiations?
