IFA pushes for CAP assurances

AN IFA delegation (left) met with Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney and his officials last Friday to discuss progress on the the EU Commission's proposals on the CAP post-2013.

IFA president John Bryan urged the minister to secure adjustments and flexibilities for Ireland on the key issues of the flat-rate proposals, 2014 as a reference year and plans for rigid 'greening' measures.

Mr Bryan said the ongoing efforts of the minister in finding solutions would be fully supported by Irish farmers.
