asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how much it cost his Department to produce the document "Farming UK"; how many copies have been printed and what were their production costs; and how many have been issued to the public.

The time spent by my officials in preparing "Farming UK" cannot be identified separately from their other work and so no estimate of overall cost is possible. Eight thousand copies of the document were printed at a production cost of £23,396. The document was produced for sale through Her Majesty's Stationery Office at £3.95 and is not being issued free to the public. I understand that because of the large number of sales outlets it would not be possible except at disproportionate cost to say exactly how many copies have so far been bought.
