Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1677/85 of 11 June 1985 on monetary compensatory amounts in agriculture (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1889/87 (2), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in cereals (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1340/90 (4), and in particular Articles 12 (2), 15 (5), 16 (6) and 24 thereof, and to the corresponding provisions of the other Regulations on the common organization of the markets in agricultural products;
