THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the financing, management and monitoring of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 352/78, (EC) No 165/94, (EC) No 2799/98, (EC) No 814/2000, (EC) No 1290/2005 and (EC) No 485/2008 (1), and in particular Article 108 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 108 of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 requires Member States that have not adopted the euro and that decide to pay the expenditure resulting from sectoral agricultural legislation in euro rather than in their national currency to take measures to ensure that the use of the euro does not provide a systematic advantage compared with the use of national currency.

(2)

Commission Decision (EU) 2015/2300 (2) on the payment in euro by the United Kingdom of certain expenditure resulting from sectoral agricultural legislation approved such measures as communicated by the United Kingdom.

(3)

On 25 August 2016, the United Kingdom notified the Commission of its intention to extend those measures to include aid schemes concerning aid for milk production reduction and exceptional adjustment aid to milk producers and farmers in other livestock sectors.

(4)

According to that notification, the measures to prevent a systematic advantage resulting from the use of the euro rather than the national currency adopted with the previous Decision (EU) 2015/2300 should apply also to those aid schemes. Decision (EU) 2015/2300 should be amended by this Decision accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The following two lines are added at the end of the table in the Annex to Decision (EU) 2015/2300:
