§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what contribution his Department made to the national festival for food and farming held in Hyde park in May; what was the cost of his Department's contribution; and what environmental matters were taken into account in preparing and establishing the contribution.
§ Mr. Curry
MAFF took part in the ASDA festival of food and farming as part of its overall exhibition programme for 1992–93, the cost of which is met from within the Department's paid publicity budget for the year. The various elements of the Hyde park exhibit were designed for this year's exhibitions programme as a whole which will take in other major venues. One section was devoted to environmental issues and was designed especially to encourage understanding of environmental matters.
