§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what further representations he has received from the farming unions in Wales concerning the danger of the knock-on effects from the dairy quotas having a detrimental impact on the beef and sheep sectors; and what response he has been able to give to such representations.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
The farming unions in Wales have made a number of such representations to me. The knock-on effects of the cuts agreed for the dairy sector will depend upon individual management and husbandry decisions.
