Council debated on cereal prices and sugar quotas

The proposal on increasing the intervention price of cereals and sugar production quotas was debated by agricultural ministers on 17 May 2011, in Brussels. No decision was taken on the negotiations on a legally binding agreement on forests in Europe. Agricultural ministers could not agree on the  authorisation, which should be given to the Commission representing the EU, and the Presidency acting on behalf all Member States in the Forest Europe international negotiations. Within the framework of Forest Europe, legally binding agreement is to be concluded by 30 June 2013. As Minister for Rural Development Sándor Fazekas said during the press conference after the meeting, three Member States, namely the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom, did not back the idea of a legally binding agreement. “The qualified majority was achieved, but further negotiations are still needed in order to reach a consensus. The Council sent the question back to the Permanent Representatives Committee (COREPER), for further negotiation,” Mr Fazekas said.
