HC Deb 06 February 1968 vol 758 cc86-7W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will give an assurance that the ban upon the import of meat and meat products from countries where foot-and-mouth disease is endemic will not be raised in respect of any of the countries concerned, unless those countries can show proof that their systems of inspection are such that it is not possible for foot-and-mouth virus in active state to be present in their meat and meat product exports.

Mr. Peart

I am not at the moment able to say more than I said on this subject during the debate on the Consolidated Fund Bill on 30th January.
