Commission sets deadlines for aid packages

Published 10 August 16

Following on from the EU Commission's aid package announcement, Member States will now meet on 25 August to finalise the details of the €150m supply management scheme. It plans for the agreed legislation to be in place in early/mid-September.

As for the remaining €350m of the aid package, which was divided up largely based on national milk production, Member States have been given until October to finalise respective plans.
