§ Dr. David Clark
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how much he has either spent or allocated on bovine spongiform encephalopathy(a) research or (b) compensation for each year from 1985 to 1992 in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gummer
[pursuant to his reply, 30 April, 1990, column 456.]: The amount given for expenditure on BSE 227W compensation in the financial year 1989–90 was incorrect and should read £4,028,063. I should also make clear that the information provided refers to expenditure in Great Britain only.
