It clearly states that aid coupled to production cannot be granted. The present aid to arable crops is allowed to farmers in compensation for reductions in the intervention price in 1992. This justification cannot remain for long, in that even as nominally 'uncoupled' it would in time become de facto linked to output and thus run up against the WTO veto.

Only with the reform of 1992, was this tradition broken: the principle of direct payments to farmers was introduced and prices were oriented towards the level of world prices. The original mechanism was based mainly on control of the 'market' through a single price within the Community, guaranteed by the 'unconditional' withdrawal of produce from the market by the Community at a pre-determined price and by a rigid system of protection at the frontier using variable import levies.
