PROPOSAL TO BAN SEAL IMPORTS
EDM #478
Tabled 15 January 2009
2008-09 Session
That this House recognises that an historic opportunity to introduce an EU-wide ban on the import of and the trade in all seal products is currently within reach, as the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers examine draft EU legislation to that effect in the coming months; notes that the Government's position is to support a complete EU-wide ban with no loopholes; further notes that 84 per cent. of the public wants to see an end to the trade in all seal products; and calls on the Government to do all in its power, and in particular encourage our 78 MEPs to support this approach, to ensure that a complete EU ban comes into force as soon as possible.
