Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Harald Vilimsky
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Pesticide use in the EU

The Court of Auditors recently conducted an investigation and found that pesticide use in the EU has been neither monitored nor reduced, and it is not clear how the Commission intends to tackle the issue.

How can the Commission allow existing EU legislation to be so disregarded whilst elsewhere the most minor details are regulated?

The Commission has apparently not monitored the completeness and correctness of the transposition at all or has done so inadequately. How will it prevent such a failure in the future?

It would have been possible to include pesticides in the reform of the common agricultural policy. Why did the Commission not do so?
