Will the hon. Gentleman say what consideration the Government are giving to more specific proposals to assist the general objective of maintaining the incomes of hill farmers, perhaps in line with the French Government's proposals put forward in legislation last month to define certain regions as being areas where special aid can be given? Will the hon. Gentleman also say what discussions Her Majesty's Government have had with Dr. Mansholt about the modification of the common agricultural policy, especially about his recent proposals as they affect hills and uplands?
