CAP reform delay could affect agri-environment funding

A final agreement on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform is unlikely to be reached until next year, after MEPs delayed a vote on the policy by three months. The delay virtually rules out any prospect of the new regime coming into force in 2014, as originally proposed by the European Commission, which could have major implications for farmers whose agri-environment schemes expire in 2014.
After the summer recess the EU Parliament’s Agriculture Committee drew up a timetable which included a committee vote on the CAP reform package in November, which has been postponed to January 23 & 24, 2014, and the full EU Parliament plenary vote is unlikely to take place until March. Only then will final negotiations between MEPs, EU Ministers and the European Commission begin, with some Brussels sources predicting an eleventh-hour agreement towards the end of the Irish presidency at the end of June.
