§ Mr. Sweeney
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will set a final date for the notification of milk quota transfers in England and Wales in 1992–93.
§ Mr. Curry
Following consultations with the industry and in exercise of powers provided by the Dairy Produce Quotas Regulations I have decided that transfers of unused milk quota notified after 16 April will have no effect on the calculation of supplementary levy liability for 1992–93, even if they are notified as having occurred during that year.
Similar deadlines have operated for the past four years. These have encouraged producers to notify quota transfers in good time and have thus assisted in the smooth running of the quota system.
