HC Deb 14 November 1983 vol 48 cc353-4W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has now considered the proposals made to him by the National Farmers Union on 23 June especially concerning a code of practice designed to eliminate whirling disease and the removal of whirling diseases from the list of notifiable disease; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. MacGregor

The points made by the NFU in its paper of 23 June relate to the implementation of the Diseases of Fish Act 1983. When my right hon. Friend and I have reached decisions on these matters we shall inform the House.
