HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 c54W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what financial assistance is available from Government sources to assist with the redundancy payments which poultry dealers may have to face as a result of the implementation of EEC Directive 71/ 118.

Mr. Strang

There is no source of Government financial assistance in this context, but the concessions we negotiated in Brussels for a phased implementation of the directive's requirements should minimise risk of redundancy among those concerned.
