Emergency Aid for Milk Farmers

21 of the EU’s 27 member states, including France and Germany, have written to the Commission calling for “at least an additional €300m envelope without prejudice to other sectors”. In result, Commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel has agreed to provide a €280 million fund to be used to help dairy farmers cope with the impact of low prices.

My question is how does that measure fit into the health check of the Common agricultural policy?
