Hill Farm Allowance Regulations 2010

Volume 718: debated on Monday 8 March 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government why the Hill Farm Allowance Regulations 2010 (SI 2010/167) refer to both the “Moorland Map of England 2009” and the “Moorland Map of England 2007”, and the Common Agricultural Policy Single Payment and Support Schemes Regulations 2009 (SI 2009/3102) refer to the “Moorland Map of England 2006”. [HL2272]

The Common Agricultural Policy Single Payment and Support Scheme Regulations 2009 and the Hill Farm Allowance Regulations 2010 both refer to the moorland map dated 7 October 2007. The Hill Farm Allowance Regulations 2010 should refer to this map as the “Moorland Map of England 2006”. The department is considering appropriate corrective action.

The Hill Farm Allowance Regulations have recently been updated to also refer to the latest version of the moorland map (the “Moorland Map of England 2009”). The Common Agricultural Policy Single Payment and Support Scheme Regulations are in the process of similarly being updated to refer to this map.
