HC Deb 21 January 1981 vol 997 c161W
36. Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he is satisfied with the implementation by the European Economic Community Commission of the decision of the Council of Ministers, taken on 15 January 1980 following the invasion of Afghanistan, to curb the sales of agricultural produce to the Soviet Union.

Sir Ian Gilmour

I am generally satisfied that the Commission has taken action on the sectors concerned and that it has been ready to take account of member States' views where possible. The Government's concern to ensure effective implementation of the Council decision is well known and United Kingdom views have been made plain as necessary to the Commission and other member States.
