Parliamentary questions
23 April 2018
E-001450/2018
Answer given by Mr Hogan on behalf of the Commission

The communication on the future of food and farming(1) adopted by the Commission on 29 November 2017 highlights Commission’s commitment to explore better targeting of direct payments. For this purpose, setting a maximum level of support per beneficiary (capping) is one of the options examined in the impact assessment accompanying the legal proposals for the common agricultural policy (CAP) for the period post 2020, which the Commission is scheduled to present on 1 June 2018.

The impact assessment will present results on the potential effects of capping direct payments, including information per Member State. Simulations were carried out to assess the impacts of different orders of magnitude and conditions of capping. Such simulations are however subject to assumptions about the future support allocations, structure of the farming sector and decisions of Member States as to the implementation of the CAP interventions. Moreover, the social impact varies depending on whether a deduction for the cost of labour would be applied or not.
