MEPs support deal on GMO cultivation

The European Parliament has voted in favour of proposals to allow EU member states to restrict or ban the cultivation of EU-approved genetically modified crops. The full Parliament was voting on a compromise deal agreed by its Environment Committee and representatives of EU member states and the European Commission. The vote is a major step towards ending four years of protracted debate over whether such bans would be legal under free-trade laws. The final agreement requires endorsement by EU Ministers, and the new rules are scheduled to come into force this spring.
