MEPs line up changes for CAP proposals

Members of the European Parliament’s Agriculture Committee are seeking changes to proposed “greening” measures in the forthcoming reform of the EU Common Agricultural Policy, amid fears that the measures will reduce crop production. The European Commission is planning to impose a new range of environmental practices in return for farming subsidies. Suggested amendments have been put forward in a draft report by the Committee’s rapporteur, MEP Luis Manuel Capoulas Santos, for discussion after the summer recess. MEPs had already called for more flexible greening measures in a resolution on biodiversity earlier this year ( Agrow No 639, p 10).
