"These Mercosour talks represent a potentially dreadful development for the future of European agriculture. I have to say that the Commission’s attitude to the matter has been appalling. It would appear as if they are lining up a deal and will be using agricultural standards as a currency to buy a deal with Mercosur countries. This attitude, I find, is appalling. It seems like farmers are the first victims of trade deals but the first to be blamed when trade deals do not work. I would like a more consistent and caring attitude from the Commission to the future of the family farm sector. It is heartening to see so many agricultural MEPs here from all the groups supporting the protection of agriculture. Dismissing Parliament’s concerns of will not work, Commissioner De Gucht, and I would urge you to consult us more if you wish to have any potential agreement signed off by Parliament."@en1
