Written Answers. - Compensation for Mulder Farmers.

[2162] 385. Mr. Allen asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food if he will make a statement on a recent European Court ruling by the Advocate General that Mulder farmers denied the production of their milk quotas are entitled to compensation for their losses during the mid-1980s.

Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): While the Advocate General has delivered an opinion, the European Court's ruling in this matter has not yet been made, so it would be inappropriate for me to make a statement at this time.
