HC Deb 12 March 1980 vol 980 c557W
Mr. Morgan

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will endeavour to obtain a substantial increase in the European Economic Community limit on hill farming allowances.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

We are supporting the need for an increase in the maximum limit for compensatory allowances under the less favoured areas directive (75/268/EEC) in the discussions taking place in Brussels on the Commission's package of structure proposals.
