THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Whereas in its Decision No 74/257/EEC (3) of 18 April 1974 and Decision No 75/7/EEC (4) of 27 November 1974, the Commission determined that the measures described in detail in the abovementioned Decisions for the implementation of Directives No 72/159/EEC and No 72/160/EEC satisfied the conditions for financial contribution by the Community;

Whereas on 22 May, 4 June, 12 June and 17 July 1975 the Netherlands Government notified the following laws, regulations and administrative provisions: - Decision No 143 of the Foundation administering the Agricultural Development and Reorganization Fund on the introduction of an amended system of aid for the improvement of farm buildings,

- Decision of the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries of 23 January 1975 on a system of aid for certain agricultural work of a technical nature,

- Decision No 148 of the Foundation administering the Agricultural Development and Reorganization Fund amending Decisions No 102 and No 125,

Whereas Article 18 (3) of Directive No 72/159/EEC and Article 9 (3) of Directive No 72/160/EEC require the Commission to determine whether, having regard to the objectives of those Directives and to the need for a proper connection between the various measures, the draft laws, regulations and administrative provisions communicated comply with the said Directives and thus satisfy the conditions for financial contribution to common measures within the meaning of Article 15 of Directive No 72/159/EEC and Article 6 of Directive No 72/160/EEC;

Whereas the measure provided for in the abovementioned Decision No 143 still complies with the conditions set out in the first subparagraph of Article 14 (2) and Article 1 (1) of Directive No 72/159/EEC, taking into account the smallness of the investment eligible for aid and its exceptional nature;

Whereas Decision No 103 of the Foundation administering the Agricultural Development and Reorganization Fund (decision on compensation paid to farmers leaving agriculture) still complies with the objectives of Directive No 72/160/EEC, after amendment by the abovementioned Decision No 138;

Whereas the EAGGF Committee has been consulted on the financial aspects of the Decision of 23 January 1975;
