Question for written answer E-000605-13
to the Commission
Rule 117
Dan Jørgensen (S&D)

 Subject:  EU subsidies for bullfighting
 Answer in writing 

On 8 November 2012 I put a question to the Commission concerning bullfighting. I asked if the Commission could confirm that EU legislation does not prevent agricultural support under Pillar 1 from being paid to farmers who raise bulls for bullfighting.

The Commission did not give me a clear answer on this point. It said that no specific payments are made for the breeding of bulls. However, that does not answer the question whether EU legislation prevents the payment of EU funds for bullfighting.

I therefore ask again: can the Commission guarantee that EU funds do not go to bullfighting in Europe?
