asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what effect the latest farm price proposals are forecast to have on expenditure under the European Economic Community budget in 1985 and 1986 compared with 1984; and if he will give a breakdown by commodities.

Expenditure from the guarantee section of the European agricultural guidance and guarantee fund in 1984, 1985 and 1986 is expected to be as follows:

  • 1984—18,346 mecu (provisional commission outturn figure)
  • 1985—19,817 mecu (1985 Draft Budget excluding allowance made for price fixing)
  • 1986—19,500–20,000 mecu (Commission initial estimate)
The effect on this expenditure of the Commission's price proposals broken down by commodities is given in volume II of the proposals, a copy of which is available in the Library of the House.
