I wondered about capping, it will suit the biggest landowners like it has in the past. So if you put some shiny new handling pens in for cattle say that makes them less stressed will you get an ongoing payment or is it a one off to pay for the kit ?
In theory big farmers & estates owners who have control over their land will potentially fit the criteria to make biggest claims as to your remarks about handling pens , they'd only get used once for loading your cattle up to go to the abattoir before rebuilding your farm

B) will there be enough incentives in the environmental proposals that we will end up not losing significant turnover from our farm businesses in the future.
C) when is elms going to be published.
