GREENS WELCOME EU BAN ON LIVE EXPORT SUBSIDIES
LUCAS CO-SPONSORED WRITTEN DECLARATION BECOMES LAW

GREEN Party Euro-MP Caroline Lucas has welcomed an EU decision to stop
paying subsidies of more than £40 million a year to exporters of live cattle
from the EU to Africa and the Middle East.

The ban on live export subsidies, which had been using taxpayers’ cash to
fund hundreds of thousands of cattle enduring journeys of up to ten days –
and conditions already outlawed in the EU to prevent animal suffering – came
into force on January 1st after a cross-party campaign organised by members
of the European Parliament’s Intergroup on Animal Welfare and
Hampshire-based Compassion in World Farming.

“The scrapping of these subsidies will immediately reduce incentives for EU
farmers to breed cattle for live export – and will ultimately reduce the
number of animals subject to the terrible cruelty the trade entails,” said
Dr Lucas.

“It is a victory for animal welfare, for taxpayers whose cash was being used
to fund the cruel trade, and the European Parliament, which overwhelming
backed a Written Declaration calling for the subsidies to be scrapped – and
the money spent instead on animal welfare projects.”

Dr Lucas, who is vice-president of the European Parliament’s cross-party
animal welfare group, was one of the co-sponsors of the Written Declaration
(the EU’s equivalent of an Early Day Motion at Westminster). Written
Declarations need to attract the support of half the European Parliament’s
members within three months to become official parliamentary policy – a
milestone that was reached with 374 signatures in July last year.

Dr Lucas said: “Animal welfare is a core concern of the European Parliament
and MEPs have worked hard to improve minimum welfare standards and reduce
the suffering and cruelty inflicted by the international trade in
livestock.”

The South-East England MEP and Vice-President of the RSPCA added: “It is
absolutely outrageous that taxpayers’ money was being used to fund a cruel
long-distance trade in animals that causes such suffering, and I am
delighted the EU has backed my call to bring the practice to an immediate
end.”

Dr Lucas added: “Farm animal welfare standards in the EU are far from
perfect and this decision represents a small step along a very long road:
Greens have demanded a complete end to all live animal exports, both within
and beyond the EU.”
