HC Deb 21 May 1982 vol 24 cc211-2W
Mr. Proctor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in the light of the decision taken by a majority of European Economic Community Agriculture Ministers in the farm price review of 1982, he will suspend all payments to the Community budget; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ridley

The Government hope that the various matters under dispute can be satisfactorily settled without the need to have recourse to such measures.
