 Subject:  Raising the intervention price for cereals
 Answer in writing 

The current rules on importing cereals into the EU deal with fees arising from customs tariffs, from Commission Regulation No 1206/2014 (establishing a derogation from customs tariffs) and from preferential rates under tariff quotas.

Given the low level of the intervention price, the customs system does not adequately protect the EU market. For this reason, the Polish Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has drawn attention to the need to increase this protection. One solution could be to raise the intervention price for cereals to a level that is closer to the costs of production of around EUR 150/tonne.

In this connection: what is the Commission’s opinion on the merits and possibility of introducing such solutions?
