Mr. John Garrett

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food with which companies, sponsored by his Department, he is having discussions about planning agreements; and when he expects to make an announcement.

Mr. Strang

My officials are continuing informal exploratory talks with a number of leading companies engaged in food and drink manufacturing. I am not yet in a position to say when we will be able to make an announcement.
