HC Deb 28 July 1982 vol 28 cc516-7W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in view of the increased potential methods of bringing rabies into the United Kingdom, he is satisfied that present preventive measures are adequate.

Mrs. Fenner

The Government's preventive measures to keep rabies out of the country are kept under close review and adapted to meet changing circumstances. I am satisfied that our stringent import controls, supplemented by a continuous rabies awareness campaign, are adequate to minimise the risk of importing the disease.
