  • Comer says European floods might make Commission amenable to SFP advance - “as early and as high as possible” : I C M S A : http://icmsa.ie
    States and while desirable ICMSA understands that the Commission is reluctant to commit to that per centage Notwithstanding that ICMSA would be pressing Minister Coveney to go as high as possible in terms of the advance payment and to pay it out at the first permissible date in Mid October The plain fact is that farm families are in the midst of one of the worst cash squeezes in living memory The financial fall out from the spring fodder crisis is only now being fully reckoned and it is likely that that will take some years to work through it s that ferocious While milk price is relatively healthy we re seeing that steady erosion of margin through input inflation that ICMSA has been warning of for years This combination of current debt and input inflation is really undermining efforts to work though 2013 and the most pressing issue for many farm families is the massive constraints around managing cash flow Farmers badly need that advance payment due mid October to be as high as possible if they are to get any financial breathing space as they head into the back year We need Minister Coveney to aim for that

    the necessary flexibilities are agreed that will allow the Minister to address the many anomalies thatare bound to arise in the new regime and to ensure that the financial stability of many farm families is not fatally undermined said Mr Comer pictured here with Commissioner Ciolos during their latest meeting Let s be clear If the wrong decisions are taken and the necessary flexibilities not secured there is a very real danger that the financial stability of many farm families will be so undermined that they will no longer be able to continue in farming Quite clearly in the context of a reduced budget agreed under the Multi annual Financial Framework Ireland is already facing a reduced budget allocation and the issue now is how this reduced sumis to be distributed amongst farmers Having been in Brussels as late as last week I am now certain that crucial decisions in terms of the Single Farm Payment as well as Pillar II schemes such as Disadvantaged Area Payments and Agri environment schemes and measures to address price volatility are all likely to be decided over the next ten days and the outcome will most definitely determine the future of farm families across the country and their ability to survive into the future noted the ICMSA President From an ICMSA perspective the issue of the minimum payment needs to be addressed and we must ensure that the payments of those dependent on farming for their income are not seriously undermined The issue of the Base Year to be used and the rules around Greening must also cater tothe needs of Ireland In relation to Pillar II the need for an effective scheme for disadvantaged areas and a meaningful agri environment scheme are absolute fundamental The last year has shown the vulnerability of
