Fianna Fáil call for ceiling to be applied to CAP


The Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Agriculture, Food and the Marine has called for a Basic Payment Scheme ceiling of €60,000 euro to be adopted in the next Common Agricultural Policy by Ireland in order to protect family farms.
Over 99% of eligible farmers received a basic payment of under 60,000 last year.
Deputy Charlie McConalogue says the policy shift would ensure that future CAP funds safeguard small and medium sized farms and provide a €74 million euro pot annually to target vulnerable sectors and young farmers:
