CIWF reports that the EU Commission has taken action to enforce the barren battery cage ban by starting the procedure that could mean 13 EU member states facing fines for not complying with the EU wide ban that came into force at the beginning of this year. Formal letters have been sent to the 13 states about their non-compliance, which are effectively starting infringement proceedings against these Countries.
The UK needs to act now to avoid being the 14th rogue state failing to implement the ban, CIWF is calling on Defra to act swiftly against those flouting the ban. The Commission has stated that action would be taken against the UK in February if the illegal battery cages were still being used.
