COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2094/97 of 24 October 1997 on a tendering procedure for the subsidy on the export of husked long grain rice to Réunion and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 2879/92

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 (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 that 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, for the sake of clarity, Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2879/92 of 1 October 1992 fixing the subsidy for consignments of rice and broken rice to Réunion (3) should be repealed;

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