§ Mr. Burnett
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, during this financial year, he proposes to draw down the full agrimonetary compensation to which the UK agricultural industry is entitled. [R] 
§ Ms Quin
In the current financial year we expect to pay some £182 million in agrimonetary compensation, including £100 million of optional compensation. Further compensation became available on 1 January this year; we expect the Commission to notify us of the amount later this month. The Government then have until the end of April to decide whether to pay any optional amounts.
