S5W-01200: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 4 July 2016

To ask the Scottish Government (a) when and (b) how it will review greening measures established under the Common Agricultural Policy.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 15 August 2016

The Scottish Government is continuing to engage via Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs with the current greening Simplification Review undertaken by the European commission. We anticipate that this may result in changes to the detailed implementation rules for greening, to be announced by the commission later in 2016.
