Article 5(3) of that Regulation provides that where an overrun has been established, the aid fixed for the current marketing year in the Annex to that Regulation is to be reduced by 1 % per 11890 tonnes of the overrun;

The aid for oranges laid down in the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 2202/96 for the 1998/1999 marketing year should accordingly be reduced by 32 %;
