ORAL QUESTION for Question Time at the part-session in July 2008 pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure by Mairead McGuinness to the Commission

 Subject: EU action in light of concerns about global food security
 Answer 

In the Commission’s Communication (COM(2008)0321) on Tackling the Challenge of Rising Food Prices – Directions for EU Action, a number of lines of intervention were outlined to tackle the crisis and mitigate the worse effects of the situation, particularly on countries in the developing world where we have seen food riots and increased hunger and malnutrition. In the Communication, only brief reference was made of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy, pointing out some of the minor changes which have been made in the light of the emerging concerns about food production. Could the Commission make a clear statement on the need for the EU to maintain and expand food production given concerns about global food security? Could the Commission also outline its assessment of the complex interaction between climate change mitigation measures, reduced input use at farm level and food production and the need to put sustainable food production centre-stage?
