    The European Parliament has backed a motion to make EU farming subsidies more transparent.

    MEPs called for the names of all beneficiaries of Common Agricultural Policy funding to be made public.

    No farm, unless it is a cooperative, would receive more than 300,000 euros a year.

    The parliament's proposal will now be negotiated with the European Commission and EU member states.
