HC Deb 28 July 1998 vol 317 c223W
Yvette Cooper

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list the grants and awards that require bids from applicants which his Department is responsible for administering and awarding(a) nationally and (b) that people and groups within Wakefield Metropolitan District are eligible to bid for; if he will publish the deadlines for these applications; and if he will produce this list on a regular basis. [51267]

Mr. Morley

The Department administers a wide range of grants and awards for which individuals and groups may apply. Some schemes are open to application from Local Authorities; however, the majority are in support of individual farmers or landowners. The geographical area to which they apply varies according to the objectives of the scheme. Comprehensive information about the Department's national grants and awards for the year ending March 1998 is contained within the 1998 Departmental Report (Cm 3904), copies of which have been placed in the Library of the House.
