MEP DEMANDS END TO EU FUR FARM SUBSIDIES

- EU ADMITS USING TAXPAYERS CASH TO SUBSIDISE ‘CRUEL’ FUR TRADE

GREEN Party Euro-MP Caroline Lucas has called on the EU to stop using
taxpayers’ cash to subsidise the cruel and deeply unpopular fur trade.

“Animals bred for fur are often kept in battery cages, receive little
veterinary attention and have few opportunities to express their natural
behaviour,” said Dr Lucas, an MEP for South-East England and vice-president
of the European Parliament’s cross-party animal welfare group.

“Slaughter methods used are often inhumane and cause further suffering to
the animals concerned – and this cruel, unnecessary and deeply unpopular
trade should not be propped up with taxpayers’ money.”

Dr Lucas made her comments after EU Agriculture Commissioner Mariann Fischer
Boel admitted that the EU was subsidising local fur producers under rural
development programmes. No figures for the total level of fur subsidies have
yet been published.

“This absolutely beggars belief – the European Commission has itself
accepted that fur farms are incompatible with animal welfare, and yet it
continues to spend taxpayers’ money on promoting it,” said Dr Lucas, who is
also a vice-president of the RSPCA.

“In line with the Commission’s own stated commitment to improving animal
welfare standards, the independent decisions of some EU members to ban the
trade completely, and overwhelming public opposition, I call on the
Commission to stop subsidising any project involving breeding or processing
animals for fur.”

She added: “MEPs and animal welfare activists last month celebrated after
the EU halted all subsidies to live cattle exporters following a successful
campaign by NGOs and in the European Parliament. I hope we are able to
repeat our success and force the EU to scrap fur farm subsidies as swiftly.”
