§ Mr. Morley
[holding answer 7 December 1998]: In the period 12 August to 11 November inclusive, MAFF Ministers received 1,894 letters from hon. Members. Many letters dealt with multiple subjects. To verify the exact number of letter from Labour hon. Members that raised problems facing the UK agricultural industry would require each one to be checked individually; the information could therefore be provided only at disproportionate cost.
