Andrew George

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will publish the notification and results of tenders to dispose of tallow produced under the over-thirty-months scheme. [90842]

Alun Michael

The tender exercise for the disposal of stored tallow from the over-thirty-months (slaughter) scheme is currently being considered by the Rural Payments Agency. Discussions with individual tenderers are taking place to determine likely quantities and availability and it is expected that decisions on successful bidders can be made shortly. Once determined, the results will be published in the Official Journal of the European Communities.
