HC Deb 19 March 1981 vol 1 c156W
52. Mr. Hicks

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what study he has made of proposes by the European Commission for negotiating long-term contracts for the export of subsidised European Economic Community farm products to countries outside the European Economic Community.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

Although the Commission's paper "Reflections on the Common Agricultural Policy" and its 1981–82 price proposals both refer to its intention to submit proposals of this sort to the Council, it has not yet done so.
