use of EU-funds by MS for animal welfare programms/projects

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Agriculture and Rural Development should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Agriculture and Rural Development,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

The amounts and use of EU-funds for (co-)financing projects or programms in the area of farm animal welfare, particularly in the area of avoiding mutilations like piglet castration and tail docking (pigs) as well as beak trimming (layer hens)

Yours faithfully,

Sabine Ohm
