17. Mr. David Heath

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to visit Somerset to discuss the beef sector with local farmers. [22318]

Dr. John Cunningham

I have no specific plans to visit beef farmers in Somerset in the near future. However, I continue to have meetings with the National Farmers Union and other organisations representing farmers interests, when matters affecting the beef sector arise.
