Written answers (Question to Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food)

The preparation of documents relating to the new agri-environment scheme is at an advanced stage and I hope to be in a position to publish them and to launch the scheme shortly. My officials have already had discussions with the farming organisations and I envisage that there will be further consultation before the final details are determined.
