HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 c469W
Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what action he proposes to take to overturn the current West German ban on bone-in beef from the United Kingdom.

Mr. Maclean

Following the European Community's scientific veterinary committee opinion earlier this year that British beef does not pose a problem for public health, our export trade with West Germany is getting back to normal levels under existing Community rules.
