46. Sir Hector Monro

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he will next discuss the future of the agriculture industry with the National Farmers Union of Scotland.

Mr. Rifkind

My noble Friend the Minister of State and I regularly meet the union. We both attended the 75th anniversary dinner in Glasgow on 10 March and my noble Friend addressed the annual general meeting the following day. My noble Friend last met the union's president on 8 April for a discussion on a range of current issues and plans to continue to meet him and his colleagues at regular intervals.
