Mr. Chris Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when the World bank will engage in official celebrations for its 50th anniversary.

Mr. Goodlad

A conference to mark the 50th anniversary of the Bretton Woods institutions to be held jointly by the World bank and the IMF, is planned to be held in Madrid on 29 and 30 September 1994, immediately before the annual meetings of the World bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Base Area (ha) 1989 1990 1991 Three-Year average
Cereals 3,280,95 3,109,432 2,967,283 3,122,222
Sweetcorn 1,303 1,322 1,530 1,378
Oilseeds 283,479 343,052 388,308 388,280

Set-aside 38,577 80,537 104,280 74,465

The figure for oilseeds is mostly oilseed rape but includes small areas planted to sunflowers and other minor crops. The figure for protein crops has been revised to exclude the area planted to vining peas following its withdrawal from the list of eligible crops. For the purposes of determining the base area for the arable area payments scheme, the set-aside areas submitted to the EC Commission were based on actual set-aside agreements for the years 1989, 1990 and 1991.
