HC Deb 21 December 1982 vol 34 c452W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if all the areas infected by whirling disease have now been cleared and whirling disease eradicated; and whether he expects trout supplies for stillwater replenishments during 1983 to be whirling-disease free.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

Movement restrictions applied following outbreaks of whirling disease remain in force on 44 sites in England and Wales. At a further five sites such restrictions are no longer in operation. I expect supplies of trout free from whirling disease to be available during 1983 for stillwater replacements.
