EUROPEAN UNION: Member states split over fishing subsidies

EUROPEAN UNION: Member states split over fishing subsidies | The European Commission | Scoop.it
Commission seeks to remove payments to fishermen who are not fishing.

 

European Union member states are likely to reject a European Commission proposal to scrap payments to fishermen who keep their boats idle in harbour.

 

The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) is being adjusted for 2013-20 as part of the Commission's proposed reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). The Commission wants to eliminate EMFF subsidies to fishermen who keep their boats docked when fish populations are low and funds for fishermen who modernise their engines to make them more efficient.

 

Campaigners argue that these payments create an incentive for overfishing. Markus Knigge, an advisor to the Pew Environment Group, said: “If you overfish, [there is no] risk that you will face economic challenges as a consequence.”

 

When EU fisheries ministers meet on Tuesday (23 October), France, Spain and Portugal will lead efforts to re-insert these payments into the adjusted EMFF. Northern European states including Germany, Denmark and the UK support the Commission's proposal. Each side has enough votes to block an agreement, so the most likely outcome is a compromise in which the payments will continue but with new conditions attached – such as making fishermen pay 80% of engine replacement costs.

MEPs views

The European Parliament's fisheries committee, which will vote on the issue early in 2013, is likely to support keeping the payments.

 

Alain Cadec, a French centre-right MEP who is guiding the proposal through the Parliament, called the over-capacity of the EU's fishing fleet alleged in the Commission's proposal a “questionable premise”.

 

“The EMFF should support the replacement of antiquated vessels by new, more energy-efficient, safer, more selective and less powerful vessels,” Cadec said.

 

Cyprus, which holds the rotating presidency of the Council of Ministers, hopes that a general approach can be agreed at next week's meeting, but a Council official said the northern European countries would not accept a deal that did not at least “limit the damage” by attaching conditions to the payments.

Boost for rural broadband as EU authorises UK state aid | The People's Republic of South Devon

Boost for rural broadband as EU authorises UK state aid | The People's Republic of South Devon | The European Commission | Scoop.it

The European Commission has ruled that a proposed UK support scheme for investing in rural and remote broadband is in line with state aid rules, following lobbying by the UK Culture Secretary Maria Miller and Conservative MEPs.

 

The UK wants to set up an umbrella scheme that would deliver around £1.5 billion to 140 broadband support schemes in areas where there is market failure in providing the much-needed high-speed connection.

 

Last week, Conservative MEPs met the Culture Secretary to discuss ways of moving approval of the scheme forward.

 

Senior Conservative MEP, Julie Girling, has been involved in securing funding for South West communities.

EU Digital Agenda: Commission calls on Polish telecom regulator to base deregulation proposal on an up-to-date market assessment | EU Info Society News

EU Digital Agenda: Commission calls on Polish telecom regulator to base deregulation proposal on an up-to-date market assessment | EU Info Society News | The European Commission | Scoop.it

The European Commission has asked the Polish telecoms regulator (UKE) to withdraw its proposal to deregulate conditions under which other operators can access Polish telecom company Telekomunikacja Polska's (TP) broadband network in 11 communes of Poland. In the Commission's view, fully supported by the body of European Telecoms Regulators (BEREC), UKE's decision could have a negative effect on competition in Poland, and thus limit the offers available to consumers and businesses. This is the second time within the last six months that the Commission requests UKE to withdraw a proposal for regulation in this market (see IP/12/914 for details of a separate case).

 

European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes said: "Regulation can and should be withdrawn as soon as there is sound evidence that competition alone will deliver the most for consumers in terms of quality, choice and prices. However I cannot accept a proposal for deregulation which is based on outdated and unreliable data, contradicted by UKE's own more recent market assessment. I also regret that UKE does not take account of clear Commission guidelines, issued to help UKE properly regulate this important market.

 

UKE's proposal was based on an out-dated market assessment from March 2011, which also contradicts UKE's own March 2012 market analysis in which the regulator concluded that no single area of Poland was competitive enough to propose complete deregulation.

 

During the two month in-depth investigation, UKE has failed to provide additional evidence to allow the Commission to withdraw its serious doubts (see IP/12/1351). BEREC has also fully supported the Commission's decision and recommended UKE withdraw its measure. As a result of today's Commission action, UKE cannot adopt its decision to deregulate wholesale broadband access in certain communes.
