HC Deb 04 May 1976 vol 910 c352W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the average proportion of animals in quarantine, which have been imported that have to be destroyed during the quarantine period.

Mr. Strang

In the last five years no animal has had to be destroyed for reasons of disease while in quarantine. Those that died did so from natural causes or were put down at the request or option of their owners.
