HC Deb 13 April 2000 vol 348 c267W
14. Mr. David Taylor

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what action he is taking to help new entrants to the farming sector. [117745]

Ms Quin

The Action Plan for Farming announced at the Agriculture Summit on 30 March will help create a long-term perspective for farming which will be of benefit to both existing farmers and new entrants. In addition, measures under the England Rural Development Plan announced in December will be targeted at new entrants where appropriate.
