ABSTRACT
This article reveals that there is no need for farmers to comply with the Water Framework Directive to get European Union (EU) subsidies, according to EU agriculture commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel. Particular focus is given to food producers' concern over a revamp of European common agricultural policy. Fischer Boel says the directive was too new to be linked to farm subsidy payments.
