Contrary rulings

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, July 1996:

Enforcing a 1993 European
Union demand for improved operating
conditions, the Irish Department
of Agriculture on May 13 cancelled
the operating permit of Western
Meat Producers, of Dromad,
Ireland. However, in a parallel case
involving other nations, the
European Court of Justice ruled on
May 23 that Britain may not unilaterally
enforce EU animal welfare
standards. Britain had barred shipments
of sheep to a Spanish slaughterhouse
which does not stun animals
before slaughter.
