§ 19. Mr. Wilkinson
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what assessment he has made of the impact of the common agricultural policy on hill farmers in the United Kingdom. 
§ Mr. Morley
The Common Agricultural Policy has provided hill farmers with a great deal of financial support. However, the Government would like hill farmers to have a more secure and sustainable future than has been achievable under the present CAP framework. This is being considered in the context of the Agenda 2000 reform proposals.
