§ Sir Richard Body
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will list the countries other than the Netherlands to which the United Kingdom has exported bulbs in the last two years; and whether any country has complained that the imported bulbs were not soil-free.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
Leaving aside exports to the Netherlands, the United Kingdom has exported bulbs in the last two years to the United States, Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, the Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland and Austria. Small quantities have been sent to several other countries. None of these importing countries has complained that the bulbs were not soil-free.
