§ Sir John Stanley
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if the reform of the636W common agriculture policy to permit the further enlargement of the European Union requires amendment of articles 38 to 47 of the EC treaty will be reviewed as part of the 1996 intergovernmental conference. 
§ Mr. David Davis
No. Reform of the CAP is possible without treaty amendments, as the 1992 MacSharry reforms showed. We will continue to press in the appropriate fora for the further reform of the CAP needed to permit EU enlargement.
