The European Commission has admitted proposals to reduce livestock journey times and stocking densities may lead to a “slight increase” in meat prices for consumers.

The draft proposals from the European Commission health and consumer directorate are currently being considered by the rest of the Commission and final proposals are expected later this spring. The draft proposals say:
• Maximum pig transport time without unloading should be cut from 24 hours to nine hours.

• Journeys for animals not intended for slaughter should be limited to 20 hours, with the option of further transport after at least nine hours of rest, with feed and water, at a designated control post.
