Milk Quotas: European Community and United Kingdom Law

Synopsis

Since their introduction in 1984, milk quotas have become a prominent feature of the Common Agricultural Policy. This indispensable and up-to-date practitioner's manual explores the astonishing influence that milk quotas have had on both EC and UK legislation. The author examines exactly how these quotas have impacted on landlords, tenants, taxation and, consequently, on rural culture itself. While exploring milk quotas on a national level, the author consistently links critical localized issues to their far-ranging ramifications as milk quota legislation becomes an increasingly contested issue at the European Court of Justice and a catalyst for legislative reform within the wider context of the EC itself.
