AGRI committee brings to light preliminary plans on farm policy

Suggestions for making direct payments for farmers fairer across the EU and simplifying checks on how the money is spent were presented by Agriculture (AGRI) Committee MEPs. Although,  proposals to prolong wine planting rights and sugar quotas were well-received, MEPS stressed that "greening" measures should be better tailored to the needs of each Member State.
Accordingly, the AGRI Committee Chair Paolo de Castro stated: "Now, we get into a delicate and complex stage. After several months of debate, Parliament's proposals have been tabled for a modern and flexible Common Agricultural Policy to make farmers' lives easier and cut red tape; We will be on schedule with the reform only if Parliament and the Council engage in a dialogue on the proposals presented today.”
