Explanations of vote

Text tabled : A6-0061/2007

  Luis Manuel Capoulas Santos, Fausto Correia, Edite Estrela, Emanuel Jardim Fernandes, Elisa Ferreira, Jamila Madeira and Manuel António dos Santos (PSE), in writing. (PT) Although the Commission’s proposal for a regulation and the report adopted in the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development represent a positive overall contribution towards defining the common principles and rules applicable to organic production, which are essentially aimed at improving consumer confidence, a number of shortcomings remain, in our view.

Nevertheless, given that we feel that the issue of the contamination of organic products by genetically modified organisms is a crucial issue and given that the amendment tabled by the Socialist Group in the European Parliament – a sensible, realistic proposal to set a maximum limit of 0.1% only if included by accident – was adopted, we voted in favour of the report.
