FENLAND farmers struggling to cope with the Government's single-payment scheme have been urged to contact their MP, Malcolm Moss.

Mr Moss, MP for North-East Cambridgeshire, plans to present farms minister Jeff Rooker with a list of individual problems at one of a series of special "surgeries" planned for this summer.

Mr Rooker says that because of "positive feedback" he has extended his surgeries throughout the summer, and will be answering issues as they arise.

Mr Rooker has told MPs that appointments are not necessary, but said: "Please could I ask you to bring your constituents' addresses and SBI numbers to enable us to identify your constituents' cases more quickly."
