THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Whereas:

(1) Article 8(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1047/2001 provides that if quantities covered by applications for A licences exceed the quantities available, the Commission is to fix a simple reduction percentage and suspend the issue of such licences covered by subsequent applications.

(2) Quantities applied for on 8 and 9 October 2001 under Article 4(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1047/2001 for products originating in Argentina exceed the quantities available. The extent to which A licences can be issued, and whether the issue of those licences should be suspended for any subsequent applications, should therefore be determined,
