HC Deb 01 February 1990 vol 166 cc358-9W
Mr. Thurnham

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what recent representations he has received about restrictions imposed on black pudding makers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maclean

My officials met representatives of the Natural Sausage Casings Association on 12 January to discuss the consequences of the Bovine Offal (Prohibition) Regulations 1989. There was a useful discussion of the background to, and the effects of, these regulations.
