To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if he will make it his policy to regulate the farming of ducks. (227910)

The welfare of ducks is provided for in the general provisions of the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and the Welfare of Farmed Animals (England) Regulations 2007. DEFRA also has a welfare code. There are no specific EU wide standards for duck welfare.
