Mr. Nicholas Edwards

Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the approximate average length of time which appellants have to wait, after appearing before milk quota tribunals in Wales, before a decision on the outcome of the hearing is notified to them; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

Appellants appearing before the Dairy Products Quota Tribunal in Wales are being informed of the tribunal's decision within four to five weeks at present. Every effort is being made to reduce this period as the work of the tribunal draws to a close.
