Mr. Sawford

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects to produce a White Paper based on the results of the Future of Farming consultation. [75839]

Mr. Rooker

My officials are in the process of analysing the results of the consultation exercise on Agenda 2000/CAP Reform. These include some 17,000 responses from individual farmers, more detailed comments from a range of organisations and the reports of consultation meetings held across the country. We shall be publishing the results as part of a further consultation paper in the Spring.
