S1M-249 Lewis Macdonald (Aberdeen Central) (Lab) : Pig Industry— That the Parliament notes the competitive disadvantage faced by Scotland's pig producers because of the lower standards and costs of animal welfare and health in other European Union countries and the lack of adequate labelling to ensure consumers are aware of the difference, and calls upon the Scottish Executive to address this problem, in the belief that action is necessary to assist the pig industry to continue to make a valuable contribution to agriculture and the economy, while matching the needs of the consumer.
