HC Deb 14 December 1994 vol 251 c720W
Mr. Olner

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what subsidies or other support are available from the European Union to support the development or modernisation of the United Kingdom slaughter industry.

Mr. Jack

Assistance for capital investments is available under the processing and marketing grant, which is an EU scheme with national back-up. In the slaughtering sector, this is limited by EU exclusions intended to avoid increasing overcapacity, but associated' activities such as boning and cutting may be eligible for support.
