HC Deb 27 April 1988 vol 132 c181W
Sir Richard Body

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will institute a system of total field inspection for bulbs, to be paid for by growers.

Mr. Donald Thompson

No. I see no reason to introduce total inspections of all bulb fields. So far as exports are concerned, growing season inspections are already necessary for bulbs intended for European Community member states and certain other countries. Under our domestic legislation charges are made for these inspections.
