Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Agriculture, Éamon Ó Cuív TD, has announced the latest regional meetings in his nationwide consultation process on CAP reform.
Deputy Ó Cuív will host the meetings to gauge opinion on CAP reform, which has caused huge concern in the farming community.
“There is a need for an open debate on the various proposals put forward in relation to CAP reform. Many farmers are still unaware of the alternatives and we will meet with farmers all over the country to inform them of the proposals while also seeking their input into the process,” said Deputy Ó Cuív.
“There are a lot of tough negotiations to come on CAP and we need the Minister for Agriculture to fight hard for Ireland to ensure we get a fair share of the funding.
“Ordinary farmers of Ireland should have an input in the direction that future policies should take. We will be seeking to get as good a consensus as possible for a way forward that will be good for the vast majority of Irish farmers and good for Irish agriculture.”
