Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

MPs SHOULI) debate the planned abolition of Common Market road haulage quotas once the European Commission comes up with detailed legislative proposals, a Commons select committee has urged.

The European legislation committee says the proposals are politically important, but the MPs are making no recommendation at this stage for it to be debated. They expect to be kept in close touch with the development of formal action proposals.

The Government told the committee that it welcomes the decision to achieve full liberalisation on quotas by 1992 and promised to try to ensure that the detailed proposals for legislation do not discriminate against the United Kingdom and other Common Market countries that already have liberal road haulage policies.

The MPs point out that the Commission accepts that proposals to convert existing bilateral permits into community quota permits will have to ensure that member states not requiring bilateral permits arc not disadvantaged in any re-allocation of the community quota.
