HC Deb 23 March 1987 vol 113 c67W
Sir Richard Body

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether his Department has obtained toxicological data prepared by the International Bio Test Laboratory in Illinois and submitted by a pesticide manufacturer.

Mr. Donald Thompson

My Department receives toxicological data from a number of sources in support of applications for pesticide approvals. Where these include data originating from the international bio test laboratory, we require independent validation of the methodology and results of the tests involved.
