Update on the European School Milk Scheme
The European Parliament’s Agriculture and Rural Development Committee has voted in favour of a proposal provisionally agreed by the European Parliament and the European Council of Ministers to merge the European School Milk Scheme with the European Fruit and Vegetables Scheme. The final proposal will be voted on by the entire European Parliament in March/April 2016, before being voted on by the Council and then becoming law. If approved by all the relevant EU bodies, Defra will be required to develop a strategy for implementing the scheme from August 2017 onwards. The Alliance is working with Defra to ensure that stakeholder’s views are well-represented in the strategy, including through any formal consultation run by Defra.
