To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food under what legal provisions the United Kingdom Government have banned the export of live animals for slaughter to Spain.

Licences are issued under the Export of Animals (Protection) Order 1981 only for exports to those countries which have properly implemented EC directives on welfare during international transport and on pre-slaughter stunning. We await assurances from the Commission that these requirements are fully in force in Spain.
