§ 24. Mr. Roger King
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what were the key achievements of Food and Farming Year; and what assessment he has made of its effectiveness.
§ Mr. Gummer
Food and Farming Year was organised by the industry to increase public awareness of farming and food production as an industry and as a way of life. The high interest shown at food and farming events throughout the country, and particularly at the major exhibitions at Hyde park and Gateshead, is a clear indication of the year's success.
