HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 c467W
Mr. Amess

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he has any plans to increase assistance to small farms.

Mr. Gummer

All farms will benefit from the recent agreement on farm prices for 1990–91, which we estimate will boost farmers' returns by at least £500 million in a full year. We have no plans to provide additional assistance to small farms.
