This is Fur: European Parliament, 21-23 January

Years of campaigning against the fur industry have created prejudices and myths among Europeans. The European fur sector will therefore now more than ever pro-actively focus on being a transparent and open industry, ready with facts and reliable information.

EU’s new animal welfare approach under fire

The European Commission said on Thursday that it is proposing a new long-term strategy for animal welfare. It said it's new approach is a "comprehensive" plan that wants to force members states to better apply existing rules that were introduced five years ago. Critics have repeatedly said the existing rules do not work because they lack economic incentives. The Commission now wants to introduce what it calls "cost-effective measures" to make it easier for member states to enact the European animal welfare rules.
