This is the first presentation of an MEP before the Parliament on this issue, which the Agricultural Committee decided to have as an own-initiative report earlier this year. The presentation is followed by a debate with other Members of the European Parliament. Amendments can be tabled until 9 December. The vote on the report is scheduled on 28 February 2017.
