Judgement for the case Case C-375/96 Galileo Zaninotto v Ispettorato Centrale

ECJ on proportionality: Given the broad political duties to further the aims of CAP, court takes a hands-off approach: “the legality of a measure adopted in that sphere (agriculture) can be affected only if the measure is manifestly inappropriate having regard to the objective which the competent institution is seeking to pursue”. Here the regulation in question was not ‘manifestly inappropriate’ and therefore was proportionate. Again, v weak definition of proportionality and close to Wednesbury in fact!
