Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

As the Deputy will be aware, the inaugural Beef Taskforce meeting scheduled for 14th October was prevented from proceeding. However, since then the independent chair and my Department continue to engage proactively with Taskforce members with a view to implementing the provisions of the agreement.

My Department and its agencies continue to progress the commitments which they signed up to under the Agreement.
