More market orientated CAP
Mrs Spelman said: “Our goal must be about continuing the move towards a more market-orientated CAP.© We need to put our farmers in a stronger position to compete on the international stage, but in a way that also protects and enhances the natural environment.

“We’ve agreed to work closely with our partners in Europe to make sure that any reform of the CAP delivers these goals.”
