72. Mr. Browne (Wexford) asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry whether the once-off installation aid for young farmers will be available after 1997; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3556/97]

Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. Yates): The scheme of installation aid for young farmers continues in operation. As with all measures operated under the Operational Programme for Agriculture, Rural Development and Forestry and other operational programmes, it is being examined in the context of the mid-term review of the Community Support Framework as a whole. This review is still under way. Decisions on funding will be taken at the CSF monitoring committee in July.
