HC Deb 05 May 2000 vol 349 c248W
Mr. Yeo

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what estimate he has made of the cost to hill farmers of complying with the new conditions being attached to hill farm support payments. [120558]

Mr. Nick Brown

The only new condition we propose attaching to less favoured area support payments is compliance with certain standards of Good Farming Practice. Responsible farmers should not incur any additional costs.
