To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will list the issues raised most often in correspondence to her from farmers in the last three months, with the numbers of pieces of correspondence in each case. [111924]

Records of correspondence from individual members of the public are not held centrally. Such letters are sent to relevant Divisions in the Department for them to answer direct. Letters from Members on behalf of constituents are recorded on the ministerial correspondence database by Member, date and constituent name. We do not record the occupation of the constituent.

The Department receives a large postbag on a range of issues across its responsibilities.
