COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 929/79 of 8 May 1979 amending Regulation (EEC) No 729/70 concerning the amount allotted to the Guidance Section of the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Whereas the annual appropriations allotted to the Guidance Section of the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund as provided for in Article 6 (5) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 729/70 of 21 April 1970 on the financing of the common agricultural policy (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2788/72 (4), will from 1980 onwards no longer be sufficient to meet expenditure by this Section on the improvement of agricultural structures;

Whereas the amount of aid that may be awarded by the Guidance Section of the Fund should be fixed for a five-year period from 1 January 1980 and, except in the case of a new Council Decision, for each successive five-year period;

Whereas the annual appropriations allotted to the Guidance Section of the Fund should be fixed through the budgetary procedure in terms of the commitments to be met;

Whereas to enable the appraisal of the financial needs of each five-year period it is appropriate to foresee suitable arrangements not only for the transition to the new financial system but also at the end of each period,

From 1 January 1980 the total amount of financial assistance which may be charged to the Guidance Section of the Fund shall be fixed for five-year periods by the Council acting on a Commission proposal in accordance with the procedure laid down in the third subparagraph of Article 43 (2) of the Treaty. The exact amount of appropriations to be entered in the budget shall be fixed annually through the budgetary procedure on the basis of the volume of expenditure to be financed under the common measures and special measures for that year.

The total amount for each five-year period may be increased by the Council acting in accordance with the procedure laid down in the third subparagraph of Article 43 (2) of the Treaty only for the common measures provided for in Article 6 (2) of this Regulation.
