§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the effect of the EEC proposal to modify the conditions for triggering intervention measures on the beef market.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
The effect of Commission Regulation 196/74 is to enable intervention measures to be taken on meat from certain national qualities of cattle when the Community reference price for adult cattle falls below 98 per cent. of the guide price, without regard to the level of prices of the qualities concerned in relation to the guide price.
