Question for written answer E-001450-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Jan Zahradil (ECR)

 Subject:  Reform of the common agricultural policy in the form of direct payment ceilings
 Answer in writing 

There has been discussion recently of proposals for reforming the common agricultural policy, with particular regard to reducing the cost of the policy to the European budget. A proposal that is often put forward is the possible application of strict ceilings to direct payments to farmers. Of course, the proposal would mainly affect large farms and holdings, and especially agriculture in countries where the agricultural structure has historically been concentrated in these big enterprises. One such country is the Czech Republic, where the average farm size is the largest in the whole EU.

Can the Commission say whether it has at its disposal calculations of the impact of introducing a direct payment ceiling for the Czech Republic?

How great would the impact be if a ceiling were applied of, say, EUR 60 000 per year, or EUR 100 000 per year?

How would the Commission assess the potential social impact in the Czech Republic if such a ceiling were applied?
