Future CAP budget could see overall “cut” of €20 billion - Kelleher

June 1, 2020

The Common Agricultural Policy budget could see a cut of twenty billion euro if European Commission budget proposals are accepted.  That’s according to the Fianna Fail MEP Billy Kelleher.

Last week the European Commission outlined its revised proposals for the EU’s next 7-year budget known as the multi-annual financial framework or MFF. It will run from 2021 to 2027. The Commission also announced proposals for a seven hundred and fifty billion euro (750bn) Covid recovery plan.

Billy Kelleher says the Commission’s proposals would lead to a significant cut to the overall CAP budget.
