Please can you provide the number of animal welfare breaches / non
compliance recorded by FSS veterinary inspectors based at slaughterhouses / meat
processing plants in Scotland with details of the breach / problems found, between January 31 2017 and the present date.
Note: to please include any breaches relating to condition of livestock presented at the slaughterhouse itself, or thought - as far as veterinary officials can deduce – to have arisen during transport or on farm. Note: to include the name / location of the plants in question (if possible).
I attach a document showing some of the information you requested.
While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because exemptions under sections s.39(1) (health and safety), s.34(1)(b) (Investigations by Scottish public authorities and proceedings arising out of such investigations) and s.38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information.
