HC Deb 27 June 1989 vol 155 c455W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will review British participation in the Common Agricultural Policy.

Mr. MacGregor

The Government's policy is to participate fully in negotiations on the CAP, pressing for reform to continue, in order to increase market-orientation, control expenditure and bring supply into better balance with demand. Substantial progress has been made in this direction, though more remains to be done.
