Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The members of the Beef Task Force were appointed by former Minster Creed in good faith, as representatives of the sector as a whole, with a view to carrying out the important task of implementing the Beef Sector Agreement of 15th September 2019.

Further to previous engagement with the parties referred to, my view remains that my Department will not and should not be drawn into intra-organisation issues about a change of representation on the Beef Taskforce.
