Whereas, in order further to stimulate the consumption of milk by young people, provision should be made for the Community to defray a part of the expenditure occasioned by granting aid for the free supply of milk to pupils in schools;

"The Council, acting in accordance with the voting procedure laid down in Article 43 (2) of the Treaty on a proposal from the Commission, may decide to make a Community contribution to the financing of programmes as referred to in the preceding paragraph provided they fulfil certain conditions."

Article 3

Article 27 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 is amended as follows:
