§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the report of the Common Market Court of Auditors that the Milk Marketing Board misapplied £460 million which the board subsequently reclaimed from the Common Market.
§ Mr. Jopling
I understand that since my previous reply to my hon. Friend on 1 February the Commission has cleard the 1978 and 1979 accounts for the European agricultural guidance and guarantee fund and decided not to disallow United Kingdom milk expenditure.
