Motion text

That this House deplores the reduction in the payment for animals slaughtered under the over 30 months scheme, combined with the imposition of a maximum weight limit on which animals will be paid at 560kg; believes that this will greatly reduce the incomes of farmers who have faced enormous pressure as a consequence of the BSE crises, and called on the Government to remove any weight limits and ensure that the compensation amount remains at 0.9ecu/kg.
