It was an honor to chair the first committee dedicated exclusively to #AnimalWelfare. Today I thanked all @EP_AnimalTran members & called on @EU_Commission not to waste any time regarding the revision of the rules! Citizens (and animals!) want change NOW, every minute counts!✊🏽

My last official task as @EP_AnimalTran chair: opening the final vote on the report & recommendations. Now we have to convince the majority of @Europarl_EN by January that we need stricter rules to better protect animals - including a general maximum transport time limit of 8h!
