§ Mr. Robert Hicks
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has made to the EC Commission following the recent European Court judgment relating to the non-marketing of milk scheme, and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
[holding answer 20 June 1988]: I am aware of this case which has implications for quota allocation in all member states; however, it is for the EC Commission to consider the necessary steps to comply with the judgment and to make proposals to the Council of Ministers. In the meantime, it would be inappropriate to advocate specific action.
