HL Deb 14 May 1987 vol 487 c820WA
The Earl of Swinton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will make a statement about the transfer of milk quotas.

Lord Belstead

Concern has been expressed about the operation of certain aspects of the rules for the transfer of milk quota with land. A number of difficult legal and practical questions have been raised and the Government have concluded that it would be appropriate to examine these fully with all those concerned before deciding on any posssible solutions. A consultation paper will be issued this week discussing the issues involved and inviting comment from interested organisations. A copy will be placed in the Library of the House.
