HC Deb 16 January 1979 vol 960 cc697-8W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what are the main areas of responsibility of his Department which are likely to be affected by the proposed enlargement of the EEC to include Spain, Portugal and Greece; and what special action is being taken within his Department to examine the problems which will arise.

Commission has now proposed revised coefficients and these will be considered again by the Management Committee later this month.

Finally, there was a further discussion on the Commission's proposals for changes in the Community wine regime and progress was made on a number of points concerning the support arrangements. The Council will be returning to this subject, together with the structural measures which have been linked to the wine proposals, at a later meeting.
