§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made of the effect of economic and monetary union on(a) the Welsh farming industry, (b) small businesses in Wales and (c) the Welsh economy as a whole. 
§ Mr. Win Griffiths
I am concerned that Welsh businesses and farmers should be well placed to meet the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities presented by the EMU. The Government are committed to helping businesses to adapt and are providing advice to businesses about the euro.
