(2) Subject to paragraphs (3) and (6), where a producer has permanently converted quota in any quota year, he or she must not transfer later in that quota year quota of the type to which he or she has converted, whether temporarily or otherwise.

(3) Where a producer who has permanently converted quota in any quota year applies to the National Assembly for a release from the restriction in paragraph (2), the National Assembly, being satisfied as to the matters set out in paragraph (5), may release that producer from that restriction.

(4) A release from the restriction in paragraph (2) shall be to the extent necessary to allow the transfer of the amount of quota that the National Assembly considers has remained unused in the particular case.

(5) The matters referred to in paragraph (3) are —

(a)that, as regards the producer, exceptional circumstances have resulted in a significant fall in milk production or a significant failure to achieve a planned increase in milk production; and

(b)those circumstances could not have been foreseen or avoided by the producer at the time of his or her permanent conversion of quota.

(6) The restriction in paragraph (2) does not apply if —

(a)in a case where the permanent conversion is from direct sales quota to wholesale quota, the producer temporarily converted direct sales quota to wholesale quota in the immediately preceding quota year; or

(b)in a case where the permanent conversion is from wholesale quota to direct sales quota, the producer temporarily converted wholesale quota to direct sales quota in the immediately preceding quota year.

(7) The following are examples of circumstances which are to be taken to be exceptional for the purposes of paragraph (5) —

(a)the death of the producer or his or her inability to conduct his or her business for a prolonged period as a result of the onset of ill-health, injury or disability;

(b)a natural disaster seriously affecting the holding;
