Future CAP funding for farmers must be defended– McGuinness

November 16, 2018

The Fine Gael MEP Mairead McGuinness says it’s fundamental that future CAP funding for farmers must be defended.  

The Midlands North-West MEP was speaking in Strasbourg where the European Parliament this week reiterated its position on the EU’s future budget post 2020.

In a vote on Wednesday, MEPs confirmed their position on the next EU long-term budget which will run from twenty twenty one (2021) to twenty twenty seven (2027).

The Parliament has set out a range of priorities for future funding including long-standing farming and cohesion policies which they say should not be reduced.

The Midlands North-West MEP says future CAP budgets must be defended especially given the extra demands being made of farmers.
