US MISSION : EXPORT FNUANCEHPNT PROGRAM

52/9 1 2 March 1991

The Prime Minister has written to me today advising me o £ a proposed mission to the United States to pursue issues relating to rural exports and subsidies paid to US farmers under the Export Enhancement Program (EEP).

Opposition proposals of the 19th of February were to send the highest level bipartisan mission possible, jointly led by the Prime Minister and myself-I am disappointed that the Prime Minister, in accepting our

proposal to directly voice Australia's concerns about EEP, has chosen to significantly downgrade it and to wait until the. eleventh hour to do anything about it.

Nevertheless we will participate and will advise the Prime Minister in due course who the Opposition's delegates will be.
