To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food by what date he intends to announce the termination of the sheep variable premium.

We are currently consulting interested organisations on the phasing-out of the sheep variable premium scheme which, under the terms of the reformed EC sheepmeat regime, must end by the beginning of the 1993 marketing year at the latest. I am well aware of the need to give good notice of any changes to the arrangements.
