Highly anticipated, Gabriel Attal spoke at Montastruc-de-Salies in Haute-Garonne. The Prime Minister announced that he wanted &quot ;act on all fronts". "I am making a clear decision to drastically simplify our procedures", he first explained promising "10 immediate simplification measures I'm taking right now"

Among these 10 highly anticipated measures, we find in particular a "single administrative control" for operators, the "simplification of cleaning of agricultural watercourses", the end of the exceptional regime on the time limits for appeals against agricultural projects, or "the transition from 14 to a single regulation for agricultural hedges".

Emergency aid of 50 million

The head of government also announced "three very heavy sanctions"against companies that do not respect the Egalim law. The Prime Minister explained that he wanted to enforce the Egalim law "everywhere, without exception". The latter, however, did not give the names of the companies which will be sanctioned.

Finally, the end of the increase in the tax on non-road diesel (GNR) was also announced by Gabriel Attal.  The government also intends to provide money for emergency aid of 50 million euros intended for the organic sector in great difficulty.

"We will double the emergency fund for Brittany", adds the Prime Minister who clarified at the same time that emergency veterinary aid to deal with diseases affecting cattle on farms will also be increased.
