To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what uptake there has been in 1989 for pollution control projects under the farm and conservation grant scheme.

Interest in the grants available under the farm and conservation grant scheme for pollution control projects has been high. To date nearly 3,000 farmers in England have notified us of their intention to carry out this type of work. Grant paid on work already carried out under the scheme as a whole, which also includes other conservation items, so far amounts to about £1·5 million.
