HC Deb 28 May 1976 vol 912 cc434-5W
Mr. Welsh

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what specifically Scottish representation there is on the Common Market Standing Veterinary Committee; and what its composition is in terms of representation from member States.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

The EEC Standing Veterinary Committee consists of representatives from each of the nine member States, under the chairmanship of a representative of the Commission. There is no single nominated United Kingdom member of the Standing Committee. The composition of the United Kingdom team varies and could include a representative from Scotland if this were considered appropriate in the light of the matters to be discussed at a particular meeting, but the members speak for the whole of the United Kingdom.
