Modest CAP Reform Package Agreed
A package of mainly modest reforms to the CAP based on the Commission's Health Check proposals reached political agreement today (November 20). The direction of travel is towards further decoupling, liberalisation, modulation and targeting. But divisions in the Agriculture Council raise questions about how far it is ready to face more demanding questions about the future of the CAP beyond 2013.
More analysis of the package will be posted on this site as details become available. NOW AVAILABLE!!
