EFRA Report: The CAP after 2013

The House of Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs committee has published its report into the future of the CAP after 2013. The report criticised the plans for the ‘greening’ of the SPS as an unnecessary complication within the CAP. It also questioned DEFRA’s stance of pushing for the abolition of direct aid. The Committee stated that it should remain until at least 2020,
and that DEFRA would not be ‘credible or effective’ in negotiations if it adopted such an extreme position.
