(2) Whereas Article 8(2) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92(3) of 30 June 1992 on the common organisation of market in veal fixes the amount of the compensatory payment for producers of potatoes intended for the manufacture of potato starch; whereas this amount is increased by the Council for the 2000/2001 marketing year as well as the following marketing years on condition that the quotas fixed by Regulation (EC) No 1868/94 are decreased for the Member States having a quota greater than 100000 tonnes by 2,81 % in the 2000/2001 marketing year and by 5,74 % in the 2001/2002 marketing year, and the current quota for the Member States having a quota lower than 100000 tonnes must be reduced by 1,41 % in the 2000/2001 marketing year and by 2,87 % in the 2001/2002 marketing year;

(3) Whereas the quotas established for the 2000/2001 marketing year should be amended and the quotas for the 2001/2002 marketing year should be fixed; whereas the producer Member States should allocate their quotas for the period 2000/2001 and 2001/2002 between all the undertakings producing potato starch on the basis of the quotas for the marketing year 1999/2000; whereas it must be made clear that quantities used in excess of sub-quotas during the marketing year 1999/2000 will be deducted in the 2000/2001 marketing year in accordance with Article 6(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1868/94;

(4) Whereas at the end of the period the Commission should make a report to the Council on quota allocations accompanied, if necessary, by appropriate proposals taking account of possible changes in the compensatory payment,
