England: Response From EU Regarding Turkish Live Export Petition.



1/4/16 – We have today had a letter from the EU informing us that our petition associated with EU live animal exports to Turkey has now been registered / entered onto the general register for petitions.  It has also been forwarded to the Committee on Petitions, who will ‘decide if it comes within the EU fields of activity’.  As the issue involves live EU animals being exported from the EU, we very much hope and trust that the petition WILL be considered as coming within the EU’s fields of activity.

The petition remains open, and we ask that everyone helps us by getting as many people to sign as they possibly can. 

The associated video link, and the petition link are provided below.  In addition, you can see a copy of the letter sent to us today from the EU, explaining the current situation.

Thanks for your help and support on this very important animal welfare issue.
