  • ICOS STATEMENT ON PROPOSED CO-OP LEGISLATION | Posts | Irish Co-Operative Organisation Society
    Bertie O Leary said that Minister Bruton is to be commended for beginning the process of review and modernisation of the Industrial and Provident Societies Act The Bill though modest in its ambition is a welcome start to the long overdue process of ensuring that groups and communities have a choice as to the corporate model they wish to operate under The co operative model provides a corporate option which promotes a set of principles and values that are unique and different from those of a company he said He welcomed in particular the provision in the Bill providing societies with access to examinership an omission from the original examinership measures which ICOS had lobbied to be corrected The measures being taken in this Bill will in part ease some administrative and regulatory burdens on co operatives in particular in respect of the current requirement to complete a Triennial Return and will also widen the scope for co operative societies to choose the accounting year end most suited to their business requirements Further updating and modernising of the now 120 year old Industrial and Provident Societies Act is an essential exercise which will contribute to Irish economic progress said ICOS President Bertie O Leary These legislative and policy changes will help to ensure that the co operative business model benefits from the same opportunities and privileges currently available to investor owned companies under company law said O Leary In regard to future legislative changes Mr O Leary noted that co operatives in Ireland currently function under legislation where there is no statutory definition of what constitutes a co operative Members are also subject to statutory financial limits in regard to how much shareholding they may invest in their co operative Smaller co operatives also cannot avail of audit exemption provisions available to certain companies and they cannot currently avail of existing examinership provisions The role of the co operative movement in Ireland is limited in comparison to that in other countries and there is a striking disparity between Ireland and other countries in the sectors where co operative businesses have flourished This needs to be addressed to facilitate the future growth and development of modern day co operative businesses We will closely examine the proposed legislation and it is to be hoped that the progress of the Bill and any related amendments will bring a spotlight to bear on the many other aspects of co operative legislation in need of modernisation he concluded Ends Seamus O Donohoe CEO ICOS 087 2867349 Issued by MKC Communications Cian Connaughton Tim Kinsella 01 703 8600 Archive Recent Posts ICOS Announces New CEO Designate ICOS EUROPEAN AFFAIRS EXECUTIVE BRUSSELS BASED Not Much Sign of Positivity for 2016 Agricultural Export Subsidies Scrapped at WTO Nairobi Deal EU Philippines Trade Deal An Opportunity for Irish Dairy Co ops Archives January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December

  • Press Statement on CAP proposals from President of ICOS | Posts | Irish Co-Operative Organisation Society
    farmer controlled Irish Agri business for over a century A high level conference on milk is proposed in Brussels for September 24th of this year On internal convergence O Leary said that the ICOS policy has always been to reward the active co op member who produces most for and purchases the most off their co operative ICOS has long supported the Ministers approximation approach but O Leary said that the agreed 60 minimum payment figure will cause problems with 103 million euro being transferred off some of our most productive producers O Leary acknowledged that the Minister was faced with a Commission proposal that up to recently was looking for a minimum payment of 75 of the average per hectare payment which would have been disastrous for productive agri business in Ireland O Leary welcomed the compulsory top up payment for young farmers in pillar I saying that the future of the co operative movement is dependent on young farmers regenerating our membership and our board structures We had supported our colleagues in Macra in calling for this since the outset of negotiations On Greening O Leary said that ICOS policy was always to concentrate on making it a win win payment for co operative farmers To that end the organisation pushed for grassland maintenance to be at the heart of the proposal We also are happy that proposals for ecological focus areas and crop rotation will be workable in the future for Irish agriculture What I do fear though as that the whole greening principle will be a trojan horse that will be used to put unbearable burdens on productive agri business in the next reform On Pillar II payments O Leary underlined how vital they were to underpin farm family incomes in many areas He hoped that new Areas of Natural Constraint ANC and Agri Environmental schemes that will be designed by the Department of Agriculture in the aftermath of this reform will be fully co financed and be targeted at sectors with most need Within rural development proposals he welcomed the inclusion of the Co operation Article 36 which he hoped could promote a new wave of rural co operatives in Ireland In conclusion O Leary stated As one of the few organisations that has a permanent presence in Brussels during the course of the CAP reform we have been at the heart of detailed and complex negotiations since the beginning of this process ICOS hopes to meet Commissioner Ciolos on Thursday for further clarification of the detail of proposals in Brussels when he is scheduled to meet key European farming and co operative leaders ICOS represents co operatives and organisation s in Ireland including the Irish dairy processing co operatives and livestock marts whose associated businesses have a combined turnover in the region of 13 billion with some 150 000 individual members employing 12 000 people in Ireland and a further 24 000 people overseas Wednesday 26th June 2013 Archive Recent Posts ICOS Announces New
