HC Deb 06 December 1979 vol 975 c321W
Sir John Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether it is his intention to continue the ban on the import of pigs and pigmeat following the expiry of EEC derogations on 31 December.

Mr. Wiggin

Discussions are continuing in Brussels on the future of the swine fever derogations granted to the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Denmark. Our policy is to secure the extension of these derogations so that existing national rules can continue to be applied to imports or pigs and pigmeat.
