The article focuses on the formal legal proposals of European Union (EU) farm commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel for the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The proposals will be presented by Boel in Strasbourg, France on May 20, 2008. The two main issues for British farmers remain the levels of modulation and changes to the so-called Article 69 provision. EU agriculture ministers will debate the proposals for the first time at their informal council meeting in Slovenia on May 27. Final agreement on the whole package is planned for November 2008.
