Maximum CAP Payments Must Be Reviewed

By November 8, 2016No Comments

Under the Programme for Government it is stated that under the review of the CAP that Ireland will seek to bring the single farm payment from a maximum of 150,000 Euro down to 100,000 Euro. When I spoke to officials in Europe about this they have no problems with this happening at all and it would free up funds for issues like The Forgotten Farmer and for farmers who have small single farm payments. This week I am urging the Minister who is now six months in power and well bedded in to Government to get to work and address this situation immediately.
