MEPs take a stand for agricultural expenditure

Members of European Parliament from various political colours defended agricultural spending in the post-2013 multiannual financial framework (MFF) during a meeting of the EP's special committee on the policy challenges and budgetary resources for a sustainable European Union after 2013 (SURE), on 13 January. The meeting was called to discuss the orientations of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).“The budget must be proportional to the ambitions,” said Agriculture Commissioner Dacian Ciolos present at the meeting. “A reduction would mean a reduction in ambitions,” he said. Ciolos underlined that the CAP is one of the most "communautaire" policies, which explains, according to him, it taking the lion’s share of the EU budget – over 40%.
