In the light of the Minister's response on the costs of CAP, will she confirm that the costs are due to increase this year by £1·3 billion and that it is expected that by 1995 they will have increased by some £4 billion?

Will she give us an assurance that the Government will oppose those unacceptable and unjustified increases?
