HC Deb 26 October 1998 vol 318 c77W
Mr. Kidney

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received in support of retaining the calf processing aid scheme beyond 30 November. [55750]

Mr. Rooker

We have received a number of representations in support of retaining the Calf Processing Aid Scheme beyond 30 November. These came mainly from organisations representing dairying interests. Representations have also been received against retaining the Scheme beyond 30 November, mainly from slaughtering and animal welfare interests.
