Flood Control: Finance

Mr. Maples: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs when he plans to publish the results of the first round of bids for funding under his Department’s property-level protection grant schemes. [282019]

Huw Irranca-Davies: The results for the first round of grants to help people protect their homes against flooding were announced by the Secretary of State on 25 June.

Livestock

Tim Farron: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many livestock farms there were in each county in each year since 1997. [281991]

Jim Fitzpatrick: The number of livestock holdings by county/unitary authority in England 1997 to 2008 is shown on the following tables. Livestock holdings are those holding types where livestock is the main activity and cover dairy, specialist pigs, specialist poultry, grazing livestock in both lowland and less favoured areas and mixed holdings. Holdings designated as mixed are included as these are holdings with a mixture of crops and livestock where neither activity is dominant.

Figures prior to 2000 include main holdings only; from 2000 onwards all holdings are included.
