Farm input supply chain - Imbalances in the food supply chain (debate)
MPphoto
 

  John Stuart Agnew (EFD), Blue-card answer. – For a start, we are not isolationist; we are just the opposite. We want to trade with the whole world and not just be bogged down with the EU. I did not raise any problems; I said that this is something working satisfactorily so do not interfere with it.

I will give you an example of the market. I am an egg producer – free-range eggs. They were in surplus in 2011 – no subsidy on that. I accepted the discipline of my packer and I reduced my production to squeeze out the surplus. Because I did that and made the sacrifice, it worked and the packer then gave me cash compensation. That is the free market working, but farmers must accept discipline. It is no good running to the taxpayer the whole time.
