I am pleased to announce that I have been able to authorise the lifting of restrictions on some farms in Wales with effect from today.

The area of land under restriction in Wales is now approximately 530 sq km—that is 131,000 acres, for those of us who were in school before 1970—affecting about 148 whole farms and parts of 211 others.
