§ Dr. Godman
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland whether any inspections by his staff during 1987 and 1988 revealed the presence of salmonella on poultry farms; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
Twelve cases of salmonella in poultry units in Scotland were reported under the 721W Zoonoses Order 1975 in 1987 and 21 in 1988. In each of these cases officers from the state veterinary service carried out a follow-up inspection.
