§ 104. Lord SCONE
asked the Minister of Health if he will consider the advisability of prohibiting the importation of boneless meat, in view of the difficulty of detecting unsoundness or disease in such meat?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Ernest Brown)
The importation of boneless meat which affords insufficient means of identification with definite parts of a carcase is prohibited under the Imported Food Regulations of 1925. My right hon. Friend is now considering the amendment of these Regulations so as to require a recognised official certificate of the country of origin with all imports of fresh meat less than the whole carcase.
