§ Mrs. Margaret Ewing
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on what date his Department dispatched application forms for monetary compensatory amounts to United Kingdom farmers, listing the date of dispatch for each of the past five years.
§ Mr. Curry
Monetary compensatory amounts are paid or levied on consignments of certain agricultural products transported from one European Community member state to another, or which enter or leave the Community. This is done on the basis of documents which are verified by Her Majesty's Customs and Excise. There is no requirement on farmers or traders to complete special application forms.
