"Mr President, the future of the common agricultural policy will see increased focus on connecting it with climate change policy. In my constituency of Wales the existing schemes and pillar two will be replaced by the Glastir scheme that focuses on climate change objectives and carbon sequestration. Farmers will be paid per hectare for water conservation, reforestation and so forth. While reforming the CAP post 2013 it is important not to sacrifice pillar one for the sake of promoting new pillar two objectives. The single farm payment is vital for many farmers reliant on subsidies that could be stripped at the drop of a hat. If Welsh farmers are unhappy about Glastir arrangements, will they be offered sensible alternatives, or will they be penalised in any way for not adopting the scheme? Choice without an alternative is no choice at all. Wales has a strong history of agriculture and many communities depend heavily upon farming. Current reforms of agricultural policy based solely upon climate change ideology could jeopardise the Welsh farming tradition and Wales’s economic future."@en1
