France wins first round of CAP budget battle

France scored a provisional victory in the battle for the EU's long-term budget last week when the European Commission proposed to leave support for farmers broadly unchanged until 2020. A deal with Germany on regional funds appears to be the key to France's success. The future of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is a major source of tension between supporters like France and critics such as the UK and the Netherlands. But a strong lobbying campaign led by Paris – the CAP's single biggest beneficiary – seems to have paid off. Last week, the European Commission tabled proposals for the EU's 2014-2020 budget which largely leave current farm funding untouched.
