Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans she has for the future of the Weeds Act 1959; and if she will make a statement.

After careful consideration by Agriculture Ministers of responses to consultations on the future of the Weeds Act we have decided to retain it. This was announced on 11 October by my noble Friend the Earl Howe.
