HC Deb 19 January 1989 vol 145 c311W
25. Mr. Amos

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the progress to date of his discussion with the European Community on the future of the beef and sheepmeat regimes.

Mr. Donald Thompson

The Council of Ministers has only briefly discussed proposals from the EC Commission for a review of the sheepmeat regime. Little progress has been achieved in these discussions. Regarding beef, no decision on the proposed reform of the regime was reached at the December Agriculture Council. The existing arrangements have therefore been extended until 5 March with a view to discussions continuing.
