Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Common Agricultural Policy Negotiations: Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Mr. Brendan Gleeson:
I stated that three member states do not wish to give more than 1%. I am unsure of the position regarding the preparedness of other member states to contribute and how much they would contribute. However, at least 18 member states - possibly 20, according to some journalists - have stated they wish the Common Agricultural Policy, CAP, to be kept at its current level and to restore the cuts. However, I am unclear what that means in terms of their willingness to contribute more because that could be achieved in a number of ways, such as less funding for other measures.
