§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will estimate how many farmers in (a) Dyfed and (b) the Carmarthen constituency would benefit if headage payments for the first 20 cows were to be allowed in the less favoured areas of these localities.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Hill livestock compensatory allowance under article 15(1)(a) of EC regulation 797/85 on the first 20 dairy cows per eligible farmer would benefit some 2,500 farmers in Dyfed. A breakdown to give a figure for part of the county could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
