Sir: On 3 and 4 June the Italian Presidency of the EU proposes to call an extraordinary Agriculture Council meeting.

If the partial lifting of the ban on British beef still does not receive a qualified majority, but receives a simple majority, then the final decision on the issue will be left to the European Commission. Since it was the Commission that proposed the lifting of the ban in the first place, it is likely that they will stick to this line next month. Why then all the melodramatics from the Euro-sceptics?
