COMMISSION DECISION of 14 November 1994 on an additional financial contribution from the Community for the eradication of classical swine fever in Belgium (Only the French and Dutch texts are authentic) (94/742/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Decision 90/424/EEC of 26 June 1990 on expenditure in the veterinary field (1), as last amended by Decision 94/370/EC (2), and in particular Article 3 (4) thereof,

Whereas the Commission adopted Commission Decision 94/190/EC of 18 March 1994, on a financial contribution from the Community for the eradication of classical swine fever in Belgium (3); whereas this Community financial contribution could be obtained for outbreaks of classical swine fever in October, November and December 1993;

Whereas new outbreaks of classical swine fever occurred in Belgium in the first seven months of 1994; whereas eradication should be continued, in view of the serious danger to the Community's pig population which this disease represents, by means of a new financial contribution from the Community to make good the losses sustained by pig farmers;

Whereas, as soon as the presence of the disease was officially confirmed, the Belgian authorities took appropriate measures which included the measures listed in Article 3 (2) of Decision 90/424/EEC; whereas these measures were notified by the Belgian authorities;

Whereas the conditions for a new financial contribution from the Community have been met;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Veterinary Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
