§ Sir Richard Body
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) if he will place in the Library a copy of the final position paper on agriculture prepared by the European Economic Community for the Uruguay round of general agreement on tariffs and trade negotiations in Geneva;
(2) what offers have been made by the European Economic Community to the Uruguay round negotiation of the general agreement on tariffs and trade for substantial and progressive reductions in agricultural support; how those offers would affect the scope and level of agricultural trade between the United Kingdom and Canada, Australia and New Zealand; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Curry
I am arranging for a copy of the Community's comprehensive position paper on agriculture, submitted for the GATT negotiations in December 1989, to be placed in the Library of the House.
The Government are working actively with our Community partners to develop this position and to carry the negotiations forward on this basis.
A successful outcome to the negotiations will bring benefits to agricultural trade worldwide.
