To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has received any proposals from the European Commission concerning the future of traditional farm-bred turkeys.

The European Commission officials are working on a draft measure for the production of all poultry meat in the single market but have not yet made a formal proposal to the Council. The industry and other interests concerned are being kept fully informed of developments and I shall take account of their views in future negotiations.
