Possible new private storage regulation for pork
The Netherlands is lobbying Brussels to draw-up a new
private storage regulation for pork.
Support has come from other EU countries, according to Frans van Dongen,
spokesman for the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) in Brussels.
The new regulation should not provide for storage of as much meat as in the
previous regulation in October, which resulted in 100,000 tonnes of pork being
taken out of the market. The regulation ended with the granting of subsidies.
The decision will be taken in the meeting of the EU Managing Committee on
Pigmeat on February 18 and 21 next.
