HC Deb 06 March 1972 vol 832 c224W
Mr. Luce

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he hopes to revoke the ban on the import of meat from Uruguay in the near future; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

I have been asked to reply.

We are in regular contact with the Uruguayan authorities on this matter, and we expect to be able to resume imports as soon as we are satisfied that our animal and public health requirements are met.
