HC Deb 11 July 2002 vol 388 cc1122-3W
Mr. Breed

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent representations she has received regarding the funding and implementation of the Curry report on the future of food and farming; and if she will make a statement. [67088]

Mr. Morley

[holding answer 5 July 2002]: The Government's discussion document 'Sustainable Food and Farming: Working Together' invited views on how to take forward issues identified in the Policy Commission's report on the future of food and farming. Approximately 250 responses have been submitted, supplementing representations made during the extensive process of stakeholder engagement conducted recently. These responses are being analysed and will help inform the construction of a Strategy for Food and Farming in England, to be published this autumn.
