§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what will be the effect on the beef sector in Wales when clawback of variable premium takes effect; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Clawback on the beef premium scheme is one of a number of changes to support measures for beef producers agreed at the Council of Agriculture Ministers on 30–31 March. In aggregate it is not considered that returns to producers in Wales will be significantly affected.
