HC Deb 31 January 1995 vol 253 cc553-4W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what compensation is available from EEC funds for the policing costs of enforcing EEC regulations against the protests in the United Kingdom; and if he will request support from EEC funds for police action at British ports in respect of(a) live calf exports and (b) fishermen's protests.

Mr. Maclean

Law enforcement is an area where the Community rightly has no competence and there is therefore no provision in the Community budget for such expenditure.
