Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 29th February 1972.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what consultation he is having with the European Economic Community on the 1972 Farm Price Review.
At my recent meeting with Dr. Mansholt we discussed the current Annual Review. Officials of my Department have also had contacts with the Commission.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that that reply will be received with some regret? Will he explain the locus standi of the European Economic Community in the Farm Price Review? Is he not expecting that the European Communities Bill will become law?
We have an interim arrangement with the Community by which we discuss these matters with them and they discuss them with us. We are perfectly free at this time to make our own decisions.
