HC Deb 15 December 1993 vol 234 cc667-8W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales by how much payments to Welsh arable farmers will be increased under the arable aid payments scheme; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Redwood

I am consulting the industry about the regionalisation proposals I announced on 29 October. Payment levels will depend on the terms of the final plan for the 1993–94 planting year which I shall announce as soon as possible after 17 December, which is the closing date for comments on my proposals.
