HC Deb 22 October 1987 vol 120 c888W
24. Mr. Nicholas Bennett

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on milk quota leasing.

Mr. MacGregor

The Council of Ministers has now formally adopted a regulation allowing the operation of quota leasing. I am very pleased we have succeeded in securing a measure of flexibility that I know is of considerable importance to many dairy farmers.
