To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement about the level of staffing at the Ministry's farm waste unit; and if he intends to maintain in post the workforce presently employed at the farm waste unit.

I attach high importance to my Department's advisory work on farm waste which I am anxious should be carried out as effectively as possible. The current balance between central and local advisory resources is being reviewed to make ADAS' expertise as accessible as possible to the farming industry and this will have implications for the size and role of the farm waste unit itself. However, there will be no reduction in overall effort.
