§ Miss McIntosh
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received on the Berlin summit agreement for the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy relating to beef. 
§ Mr. Rooker
Following the conclusion of the Berlin summit on Agenda 2000, a summary of the CAP Reform agreement was sent to interested organisations on 22 April 1999. We have received representations from those involved with the beef sector, including consumer groups. These representations are in addition to regular on-going contact with representatives from the beef sector. We will be consulting on all discretionary elements of the Agenda 2000 agreement in the Summer.
