Radioactive contamination of foodstuffs (A7-0001/2011, Ivo Belet) (vote)

  Ivo Belet (PPE). – Madam President, it is an oral amendment on compensation for farmers, with thanks to Mrs Rivasi for the initiative. It reads as follows: ‘The Commission shall submit, by March 2012, a report to the European Parliament and the Council on the appropriateness of a mechanism for compensating farmers whose foodstuffs have been contaminated above the maximum permitted levels and that cannot be placed on the market. That mechanism should be based on the polluter-pays principle. The report shall, if appropriate, be accompanied by a legislative proposal setting up such mechanism’. This is a joint proposal by five political groups.
