HC Deb 22 November 1979 vol 974 c282W
Q21. Mr. Renton

asked the Prime Minister whether she will seek to place on the agenda for the European Council meeting in Dublin the problem of the additional burdens on the common agricultural policy that will arise as a result of the accession of Greece and Portugal to the EEC.

The Prime Minister

No. The Government are well aware of the implications of Greek and Portuguese accession for the common agricultural policy, but do not believe that the European Council would be an appropriate forum in which to discuss them.
