BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The Paritätische Wohlfahrtsverband calls for social compensation for the poor if food to protect the environment and farms should become more expensive – as demanded by Agriculture Minister Cem Özdemir. The managing director of the association, Ulrich Schneider, demanded in the “Welt” (Monday) with a view to social welfare recipients, corresponding price increases must “necessarily go hand in hand with a significant increase in the standard rates. You cannot separate ecological and social issues. It is only eco-social, otherwise you lose get popular support. “
Özdemir (Greens) had previously denounced dumping prices for food and agricultural products. “There must be no more junk prices for food. They are driving farms into ruin, preventing more animal welfare, promoting species extinction and polluting the climate. I want to change that,” he told “Bild am Sonntag”.
The Union also demanded to keep an eye on the social. “In any case, we will pay very close attention to the social impact, because not everyone can afford organic products,” said CDU / CSU parliamentary group vice-president Steffen Bilger of “Welt”. The CDU politician also referred to a possible import of cheaper food from abroad./shy/DP/stk
