HC Deb 21 January 1999 vol 323 c575W
Mr. Charles Kennedy

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will place in the Library full copies of the responses received to the Government's current consultation process with farmers, with the analysis carried out of the responses by his Department; and if he will make a statement. [66365]

Mr. Nick Brown

Farmers in England are being asked for their views on the implementation of proposals to reform the Common Agricultural Policy. Over 175,000 questionnaires have been sent out to farmers in England, asking them to indicate, by placing a tick in the appropriate box, whether they agree or disagree with options. Equivalent consultation exercises are being undertaken in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Although it would not be meaningful to place copies of all individual returned questionnaires in the Library, summaries and analyses of the returned questionnaires will be deposited in the Library at intervals.
