THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1703/72 of 3 August 1972 amending Regulation (EEC) No 2052/69 on the Community financing of expenditure arising from the implementation of the Food Aid Convention of 1967, and laying down rules for the Community financing of expenditure arising from the implementation of the Food Aid Convention of 1971 (1), and in particular Article 9 (3) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2681/74 of 21 October 1974, on Community financing of expenditure incurred in respect of the supply of agricultural products as food aid (2),

Having consulted the EAGGF Committee,

Whereas the Kingdom of Belgium has supplied to the Commission the supporting statements required for the clearance of the accounts pursuant to Article 2 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 522/73 of 14 February 1973 laying down detailed rules for the application of Regulation (EEC) No 1703/72 (3);

Whereas, under Articles 7 and 8 of Regulation (EEC) No 1703/72, only the value of the goods and the appropriate forwarding and distribution costs may be financed under the relevant rules; whereas the same rules apply mutatis mutandis to operations concerning milk products; whereas the inspections carried out show that part of the expenditure declared, totalling Bfrs 940 290, does not satisfy the requirements and must therefore be disallowed; whereas, furthermore, at this stage, an amount of Bfrs 16 308 614 should be deducted subject to supplementary examination to determine, on the basis of further information to be provided by the Member State, responsibility for certain losses and the justification of the payment of certain transit costs; whereas the Member State has been fully informed of these deductions and has had an opportunity to state its views thereon;

Whereas the reservation made in point 6 of the Annex to Commission Decision 77/756/EEC of 22 November 1977 on the clearance of the accounts presented by the Kingdom of Belgium in respect of expenditure incurred in the 1974 financial year on cereals and skimmed-milk powder purchased on the market and supplied as food aid (4) can be withdrawn, in view of the 1975 clearance,

Article 1

The accounts of the departments and agencies empowered by the Kingdom of Belgium to pay expenditure incurred in the 1975 financial year on cereals and milk products supplied as food aid shall be cleared as indicated in the Annex hereto.

Article 2
