Question for written answer E-007737-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Joëlle Bergeron (EFDD)

 Subject:  European subsidies for winegrowers
 Answer in writing 

French vineyards have been greatly damaged by weather this year. Frost, hail and drought will cause a lower production in 2016 than in previous years which will not necessarily be compensated for by higher prices.

Only 24% of French vineyards are insured against adverse weather conditions.

Considering the extent to which French winegrowers are dependent on weather conditions, several experts have asked that European subsidies granted to winegrowers be made subject to an obligation for said winegrowers to take out insurance, which is not the case at present.

Will the Commission, in the short or medium term, take measures to render such an insurance compulsory when European subsidies are granted to winegrowers?
