§ 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.
