Explicații scrise ale votului

The Parliament adopted a resolution on another new successful European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) called “End the Cage Age”. I congratulate the initiators for their achievement and for bringing this topic to the attention of the EU institutions and generating a debate at EU level.
I supported the resolution, as I believe that we have the capacity to ameliorate the living conditions of farm animals for the benefit of all sectors and consumers. Healthy animals means healthy food. Changes should happen gradually, taking into account the traditions, national characteristics. There exist good examples and alternatives to cage farming in several Member States, the EU should facilitate the exchange of experiences and conduct impact assessment in order to arrive soon to cage free animal farming.
The resolution asks the Commission to come up with a legislative proposal concerning the ban of cage farming, as only this could guarantee a level playing field for all European farmers. Now, it is on the Commission to carefully examine the possibilities and decide on further actions. As EP rapporteur for the ECIs, I can only wish that the Commission makes a brave step forward in the area of participatory democracy leaving behind its until known reservations.
