Entry Level Stewardship Scheme

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 3 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what plans he has to introduce new cross-compliance measures into the entry level stewardship agreement. (258820)

Compliance with single payment scheme cross compliance requirements has been a requirement for environmental stewardship agreements entered into from January 2007. Cross compliance changes, to be introduced in January 2010 as a result of the recent CAP health check agreement, will apply to these environmental stewardship agreements. A public consultation on the health check changes will be launched later this year.
