ORAL QUESTION for Question Time at the part-session in July 2008 pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure by Neena Gill to the Council

 Subject: CAP and rising food prices
 Answer 

French Agriculture Minister Michel Barnier has called for Europe to establish a food security plan and resist further cuts in Europe’s agriculture budget. However, such a move could be counterproductive, raise worldwide food prices at a time of crisis and do nothing for the long-term health of European agriculture. Would the Council outline its view on the impact of the CAP on food prices?
