AGRI Committee prepares its opinion on Novel Foods

This meat is brought in by illicit means

The European Parliament Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development met to discuss the draft opinion on novel foods.. John Stuart Agnew said that the last time this was discussed, he mentioned bushmeat. The document said that this should meet the same standards, but he noted that this is not as easy as stated, as this meat is brought in by illicit means. He said that these animals can contain Ebola and are eaten without proper regulation. He said that this should be taken as seriously as discussions on GMOs.

Nigel Farage, UKIP’s leader said: “Whether they like it or not, we will never be free of the European Convention of Human Rights while we stay in the European Union.

Hospital costs are steadily rising, making structural change in the healthcare system a matter of urgency

The Five Star Movement promotes an alternative healthcare system where quality of health services takes priority over economic interests. The main objective of the movement is to reduce wasteful expenses and promote meritocracy through objective, clear and transparent criteria. This would avoid the migration of human and economic resources from the public to the private healthcare sector and reduce political nepotism.
