To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (1) what the (a) maximum, (b) minimum and (c) average value of claims made in England under the Common Agricultural Policy were in 2007; (257432)

(2) what the (a) maximum, (b) minimum and (c) average value was of claims made in England under the Common Agricultural Policy in 2008.

The 2007 scheme year value of payments made under the Common Agricultural Policy are:

£

Maximum

3,170,052.01

Minimum

0.01

Average

14,511.63

This information relates to the European financial year 2008, which is 16 October 2007 to 15 October 2008.

Unfortunately the data required to provide payment information for earlier years is not held in a form that is easily accessible and it could be compiled only at disproportionate cost.
