Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

With one exception, the applications referred to by the Deputy are currently under consideration by my Department in accordance with the applicable legislation.

As these applications are under consideration as part of a statutory process it would not be appropriate for me to comment further at this time.

In the case of T05/306A, my Department’s records indicate that this application was withdrawn in 2005.
