HC Deb 26 June 1997 vol 296 c633W
Mrs. Organ

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to alter the amount payable to farmers involved in the over 30 months cattle scheme to take account of fluctuation in the value of the green pound. [5341]

Mr. Rooker

None. The sterling value of payments made for cattle slaughtered under the over 30 months scheme still represents a good return in comparison with the market price of clean beef in the UK and cull cow prices in some other member states.
