Olive trees: MEPs to demand answers on how to tackle spread of killer bacteria

Parliament will quiz the Commission Thursday morning on plans to tackle the outbreak of Xylella fastidiosa bacteria, which have infected several thousand hectares of olive plantations in Italy, and prevent it spreading to other EU regions. The Commission will also be asked to respond to the question on how they will compensate any growers whose trees have to be destroyed.
