§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
The German Minister of Food, Agriculture and Forestry, Mr. Jochen Borchert, has accepted my invitation to visit the UK to discuss the future of the CAP. I hope we will shortly be able to agree specific dates. We do, of course, meet regularly at meetings of the Council of Agriculture Ministers in Brussels or Luxembourg.
§ 25. Ms Roseanna Cunningham
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how often the common agricultural policy advisory group has met to discuss the future of the CAP; and what is its intended programme of meetings for the coming year. 
§ Mr. Hogg
The report of the CAP review group, which records the conclusions of its 11 independent members, was published on 26 July 1995. The report, which was circulated widely to politicians, academics and non-Governmental public bodies both here and throughout Europe, was instrumental in promoting a genuine debate on the future of the CAP. Copies of the report were placed in the House Library.
§ Mr. Robathan
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what proposals he has made to curb fraud within the CAP across the EU.
