31. Mr. David Porter

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what further measures he is taking to assist egg producers whose flocks are found to be infected with salmonella.

Mr. Maclean

As announced in the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Newark (Mr. Alexander) on 13 February,Official Report, column 200, the scales of values for calculating compensation, where infected flocks are compulsorily slaughtered, have been revised to reflect increases in commercial prices and will be kept under regular review in future.
