§ Mr. Geraint Howells
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he has taken to ensure that the milk quota system is being operated fairly and evenly within the European Community; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Generally, we are satisfied that most member states appear to be applying the quota system correctly. The Commission, which is responsible for the regulations, recently began action in the European Court against Italy for failing to operate the quota system.
