Mr. Oaten

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many dairy farms were closed as a result of action taken following farm inspection reports in each year since 1995–96. [69704]

Mr. Rooker

The table shows the number of production holding registrations withdrawn by financial years. Certain of these withdrawals were temporary as production holdings may be re-registered once they have made the necessary adjustments to comply with legislative requirements.

Year Number
1994–95 62
1995–96 29
1996–97 73
1997–98 51
