It's nice to have it confirmed

Maurice Faure is the last surviving signatory of the Treaty of Rome. So it's nice to have his confirmation that the Treaty, whose agricultural clauses have never been modernised, was a great deal for farmers.

Faure told the Financial Times, 'The Treaty of Rome was very favourable to farmers.' The new arrangements offering subsidies and markets for France's grain and sugar beet surpluses were 'a big concession by Germany.'
