COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 531/97 of 21 March 1997 on a tendering procedure for the subsidy on the export of husked long grain rice to Réunion

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 3072/95 of 22 December 1995 on the common organization of the market in rice (1) and in particular Article 10 (1) thereof,

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2692/89 of 6 September 1989 (2) lays down detailed rules for exports of rice to Réunion;

Whereas examination of the supply situation on the island of Réunion shows a shortage of rice; whereas, in view of the availability of rice on the Community market, Réunion should be allowed to obtain supplies on the Community market; whereas, because of the special situation of Réunion, it is appropriate to limit the quantities to be exported and, therefore, to fix the amount of the subsidy by tendering procedure;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Cereals,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
