Cioloş defends plans to reform EU farm policy

Agriculture Commissioner Dacian Cioloş faced a barrage of criticism yesterday (7 November) over plans to overhaul the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) before a rare gathering of national farm ministers and members of the European Parliament.

The European Commission announced its blueprint for the EU's 2014-2020 budget six months ago, which largely leaves current funding for the CAP untouched at €53 billion per year.

Putting a legislative blueprint on the table in September, the Commission then proposed changes that include setting aside more land for conservation, streamlining policies and taking steps to equalise payments to farmers in newer member states.
