HC Deb 31 January 1996 vol 270 c778W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what assessment he has made of the benefits of granting compensation for purchasers of milk quotas in the event of the discontinuance of the scheme. [12488]

Mr. Baldry

Current EC legislation provides for milk quotas until 31 March 2000. The future of the milk quota system will be reviewed in Brussels before then and the Government will be assessing the options for reforming the present arrangements in the context of that review.
