CAP: not a return to milk lakes and butter mountains

Ahead of today (23 January) vote in the agriculture Parliamentary committee on a series of reform proposals of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), MEPs have warned against a return to the past of market interventions.
It is a matter of concern whether the amendments on the sCMO on public intervention and private storage aid threaten a potential return of 'milk lakes' and 'butter mountains'.
The Agricultural Committee will this week vote only on compromise amendments and not the final vote. The Parliament's plenary (March 2013 tbc) will have to approve the Agricultural committee vote as a negotiating mandate for subsequent talks with the Council.
