§ Mr. Geraint Morgan
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will support a change in the method of calculating pigmeat monetary compensation amounts whereby the latter would be calculated on the same basis as cereal monetary compensation amounts.
§ Mr. John Silkin
I have made clear in the EEC Council my belief that action must be taken to correct the present unfair method of calculating monetary compensatory amounts on pigmeat. I have discussed this question with the Commissioner for agriculture, Mr. Gundelach. At our most recent meeting he reaffirmed the Commission's intention to do its utmost to find a permanent solution to the problem in the pigmeat sector.
