"Madam President, my party favours withdrawal from the EU altogether, and therefore from the CAP. However, the reality is that we are in it and we have got to make the best of it. What do we think of the Dess report? Well it is a bit like the legendary curate’s egg. Parts of it are good. The idea of making direct payments conditional upon cross-compliance with environmental protection and landscape management is potentially beneficial, but only as long as they are not tied to the semi-religious precepts of climate change and social diversity nonsense. The report recognises that the agricultural sector must continue to be supported by government price intervention, because quantities produced cannot be predicted or planned precisely and demand for agricultural products is low in price elasticity. That is important to ensure food security and avoid price volatility. The most important thing from our point of view is that the UK must cease to be a net contributor to the cost of the CAP."@en1
