CLA comment on CAP decision

26 November 2013

CLA President Harry Cotterell said the CLA appreciated that in an age of austerity agriculture has to take its share of the cuts along with every other sector, and said it was pleased that, overall, CAP budget has not been cut by far more. 

 Mr Cotterell said: "We believe the fairest approach was simply to have the same percentage reduction across the UK."
