To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord Davies of Oldham on 15 March (WA 118), whether the 35 outstanding claims for 2007 include the 31 claims referred to in the footnote; whether the 92 claims for 2008 include the 67 claims referred to in the footnote; and, in either case, why the total for both years was given as 157.

In respect of the Written Answer by Lord Davies on 15 March (WA 118), the 35 outstanding single payment scheme (SPS) claims for the 2007 SPS scheme year include the 31 claims referred to in the footnote and the 92 claims for the 2008 SPS scheme year include the 67 claims referred to in the footnote.

The total of 157 was an arithmetic clerical error and should have read 127. I have requested that the Official Report be corrected.
