Farmers will be hoping to receive clarity on CAP post-2020 today, as EU Commissioner Phil Hogan addresses a joint Oireachtas committee meeting.

Hogan, who’s Ireland’s European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, will speak in front of the two committees later.

The reform of CAP post-2020, EU trade policy, the challenge of Brexit and the Rural Development and LEADER programmes are expected to dominate the talks.


Clare Fine Gael TD Joe Carey, who’s the chair of the Oireachtas Rural & Community Development Committee, says he’ll be asking the tough questions of the commissioner.
