amending Regulation (EC) No 1384/2005 as regards the quantity covered by the standing invitation to tender for the export of barley held by the Hungarian intervention agency

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in cereals (1), and in particular Article 6 thereof,

Whereas:

Under Commission Regulation (EC) No 923/2005 (3), the Hungarian intervention agency has undertaken to make 40 000 tonnes of barley available to the Portuguese intervention agency in connection with the shortage of animal feed in Portugal.

Hungary has therefore informed the Commission of its intervention agency’s intention to change the quantity put out to tender for export. In view of that request, the quantities available and the market situation, the maximum quantity covered by the standing invitation to tender opened by Regulation (EC) No 1384/2005 should be amended.

(3)

Regulation (EC) No 1384/2005 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

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