Hill Livestock Compensatory Allowances

EDM number 10 in 1993-94, proposed by Paul Tyler on 18/11/1993.

That this House, recalling the cuts in the hill livestock compensatory allowance payments last year and the subsequent outcry, noting the Agriculture Select Committee's Report and its conclusion that the process had been politically mishandled, notes the downward drift in incomes of farmers in hill areas with the marginal increase in the current year due solely to a one-off devaluation of the green pound; and calls upon Her Majesty's Government to ensure that the levels of HLCAs are restored to a realistic level in this year's budget and are increased to protect the livelihoods of this vulnerable sector and the threatened rural communities of the uplands.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
