asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food which of the various measures which he introduced in February 1987 and March 1987 will be of help to small farmers in north Norfolk.

It is of course up to individual farmers, whatever their size or location, to decide how to adapt their businesses to the changes ahead as a result of the reform of the CAP. However, the package we announced offers the industry a number of promising new opportunities which individual farmers may wish to consider in the light of their own circumstances. The measures to encourage alternative use of agricultural land and to assist diversification are described in the set of documents published by the Government on 10 March and entitled "Farming and Rural Enterprise".
