HC Deb 10 March 1999 vol 327 cc303-4W
Dr. Marek

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what his policy is with regard to the capping of subsidies for cereals and root crops within the EU. [75014]

Mr. Rooker

[holding answer 9 March 1999]: We are opposed to the capping of subsidies at EU level, as proposed by the European Commission, which would discriminate against UK farmers because of our different farm structure.
