Food distribution to the most deprived persons in the Union (debate)
MPphoto
 

  John Stuart Agnew, on behalf of the EFD Group. – Mr President, a programme was introduced to cut intervention stocks; it succeeds, but does the programme stop? No, of course not. For the Commission nothing can ever stop. Not only that, they act illegally.

To quote the Danish Parliament, the legal basis cited by the Commission is incorrect. Incoherence partners illegality, and while this report refers to people not having enough food, plans to reform the CAP propose measures which will cut food production in some of Europe’s best farmland. Only the Commission could make me feel sorry for French farmers.

Like East Anglia, my region, the Paris Basin is intensively farmed and very highly productive, but in future they, like us, must produce less. It is called creating ecological focus areas: 7% comes out of farming. The Commission claims that this will cool the world’s weather. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change forecasts warming of an average of 0.2°C per decade. According to the last figures I heard, we had not actually warmed at all in the 2000s!

This weekend I recorded the lowest temperature on my farm since 1986. Commission policies are illegal, incoherent and apparently stupid all at the same time. When will common sense prevail?
