"Madam President, thank you to Mr Dess for a very interesting and informative report. Inevitably, on an issue of this complexity, there are bits you agree with and bits you do not. With 42% of our European expenditure going on the CAP, it is vital that we provide complete accountability to our citizens. Most people, in the face of rising food prices – sharply rising food prices – and dire warnings about lack of supply, will be expecting to see a CAP which focuses clearly on increasing productivity and efficiency. Yes, we have to take care of the environment – I am a member of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety and we know that – but we are in real danger here of creating a report with a rhetoric moving into things like ‘greening Pillar One’; we are talking about moving away from the real focus, which is efficiency. On that basis, I do not support the capping of payments to large farms. This move will be institutionalising inefficiency and there is no justification for it."@en1
