The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) lavishes subsidies on some of Britain’s wealthiest farmers and landlords. Losers include small farmers, consumers, taxpayers, and the environment in the UK – and millions of people in developing countries. Current reform plans do not go far enough. The ‘new’ CAP will still overwhelmingly benefit a wealthy minority in Britain, and finance the export dumping that causes poverty in developing countries. The British Government should be doing far more to demand fundamental reform.
