To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many times since 1 January he has met (a) farmers' representatives and (b) consumers' representatives.

Since 1 January 1990, I have met representatives of farming unions seven times and representatives of consumers three times. The three meetings with consumers' representatives included one, at my request, at which 15 consumer organisations were represented. My hon. Friends the Parliamentary Secretaries have met with representatives of consumer and farming organisations on a further 15 occasions.
