Animal Welfare: Grants

Question for Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

UIN HL15877, tabled on 21 May 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government what grants were made by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to animal welfare groups in each of the last five years; to which groups they were made; and how much was provided in each grant.

The information requested is not held centrally and to obtain it would incur disproportionate costs.

As part of a government wide digital transparency self-service agenda, government grant data from the previous three years is available online through the Government Grants Information System (GGIS). Data for Defra is combined with data for Defra’s arms-length bodies. As we have no firm definition of what an animal welfare group is these grants would not be easily identifiable on the GGIS.
