MEPs vote to reverse cuts to EU agriculture budget

Budgets committee members approved plans to increase the EU’s budget for 2017 by 29 votes to seven, with one abstention.

 

They want to add €600 million to the agriculture budget to deal with the dairy crisis and ease the effects of Russian sanctions on milk.

 

Committee chief Jens Geier said: “Europe should be big on big issues. Consequently we have reinforced the budget lines to support jobs and growth and reversed the cuts made by the member states, who acted against their own priorities.”

 

There will be a full parliamentary vote on a new proposed EU budget of €161.8 billion on 26 October, which is to be followed by three weeks of ‘conciliation’ talks with member states.

 

The plan is to reach a deal on next year’s budget by December.
