§ Mrs. Ren—e Short
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what consideration has been given to the use of safer herbicides than 2,4,5-T.
§ Mr. Wiggin
Other chemicals cleared by the Advisory Committee on Pesticides could in some, but not all, circumstances be used as alternatives to 2,4,5-T, but they are less selective and more expensive. The Advisory Committee on Pesticides advised Ministers that 2,4,5-T is not unsafe if used correctly.
