HC Deb 11 March 1987 vol 112 c216W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many dairy farmers in Wales (a) numerically and (b) as a percentage of the whole will be eligible to pay for the costs of dairy inspection at the reduced rate of £80 per visit.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

As at June 1986, 1,533 main holdings were eligible for the reduced rate of costs of dairy inspection. This represents 20.3 per cent. of all holdings with dairy cows in Wales. However, not all these holdings are registered for milk production under the Milk and Dairies Regulations.
