HC Deb 03 December 1993 vol 233 c848W
Mrs. Ray Michie

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many applications there have been for sheep quotas from the national reserve; if she will give the number of successful applications as a proportion of all applications; and if she will provide a breakdown of the statistics for the United Kingdom.

Mr. Jack

Before applications to the national reserves can be invited, the necessary legislation must be laid before Parliament. This will be done shortly. At the same time, I shall give details about the arrangements for making applications.
