Greens have said the Commission’s approval of 10 new GMOs for import go against public wishes and represent a missed opportunity for farmers in the South West.
Molly has written to the Commission seeking clarification on a €100,000 exemption on VAT for small and micro businesses.
A letter signed by members of the Sustainable Food Steering Group, a cross-party MEP group, and England’s three Green MEPs calls for the publication of an important communication: “Building a Sustainable European Food System.”
Molly has welcomed news that the European Commission is likely to follow Green advice and introduce a VAT exemption for all micro businesses with a turnover of less that €100,000.
Molly has launched an important report that concludes the South West can produce 100% of its energy needs from renewables.
Molly has joined EU unions in denouncing UK government action on tackling tax avoidance as a sham, saying cuts to tax administration staff across Europe. She believes that such cuts amount to government collusion in tax avoidance.
Molly will this week release a new report which demonstrates that the South West has the renewable energy resources to meet more than 100% of its total energy needs
This edition has a strong focus on agricultural issues, including the end of the EU milk quota system, the dangers of CAP reform watering down green issues and the potentially devastating impacts of TTIP on food and farming.
Molly has described the negotiations around the TTIP trade deal as a ‘stitch up’ following her experiences in the Agricultural Committee of the European Parliament.
A new study, The Power to Transform the South West, commissioned by Molly Scott Cato, demonstrates how the South West can meet all of its energy needs through renewable energy generation.
