HC Deb 06 December 1979 vol 975 c319W
Mr. Hawksley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he has received from the EEC Commission its proposals on the sugar quotas for 1980–1985; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

Formal proposals for the sugar regime from 1 July 1980 have not yet been put before the Council of Ministers. My right hon. Friend will, however, be seeking a substantial reduction of the Community's surplus production, together with fair treatment for the United Kingdom's interests.
