CAP needs to do more to support sustainable farming and healthy food and environment. It has lost this balance with expanding subsidised intensive industrial (polluting) farming. This is not in the interests of the citizens of europe or a good use of taxes.

Hopefully the new CAP will be capable of including small game birds and nature in its proposals.
To date it has not being consistent with its objectives of delivering a better environment for us all.
It would actually seem that one strand was in complete contradiction of the other. Q
