HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 c292W
36. Mr. Trippier

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he next intends to discuss marginal land problems with other European Economic Community Agriculture Ministers.

Mr. Peter Walker

Discussions on the United Kingdom's case for extending its less favoured areas are presently under way between my officials and those of the European Commission, most recently on 17 November. It is not possible to predict at this stage when the issue will come before the Council of Agriculture Ministers.
