15. Major HOPE
asked what steps the Board of Agriculture for Scotland are taking to inspect fruit and vegetables exposed for sale in Edinburgh and Glasgow markets, and to report any cases of American gooseberry mildew or other notifiable disease; whether there is a daily inspection; and whether this inspection takes place in the early hours of the morning when produce is first sold?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The inspectors of the Board visit these markets at an early hour from time to time to inspect the fruit and vegetables exposed for sale. Arrangements are also made with the authorities of these markets to report immediately to the Board the presence, or apparent presence, of any diseased fruit in the market.
