To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why Morvern and Ardnamurchan are excluded from the areas eligible to participate in the pilot extensification schemes for beef and sheep.

I have been asked to reply.The pilot extensification schemes are being limited to areas served by the Borders and Highland area offices of the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for Scotland. Morvern and Ardnamurchan, although within the Highland region, are covered by a different area office.
