Question for written answer E-006028-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ramón Luis Valcárcel Siso (PPE)

 Subject:  Proposals regarding health for the future of European agriculture
 Answer in writing 

In the context of the negotiations on the common agricultural policy (CAP) for the next Multiannual Financial Framework for the 2021-2027 period, and in line with the proposals of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, there is a need to go beyond sectoral objectives and emphasise certain cross-cutting issues. One such priority issue is the health of our consumers.

In this connection, according to a report published by the European Public Health Alliance, there are ways to strengthen the future CAP while ensuring high standards of public health for farmers, distributors and consumers alike. Proposals to this end include raising awareness of healthier diets — based on fruit, vegetables and pulses — or the promotion of agricultural work among young academics.

1. In view of the above, how does the Commission intend to boost public health in the CAP proposal?

2. What instruments does the Commission have at its disposal to assess public health standards in the Member States?
