Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what expenditure has been incurred by his Department in ensuring slaughterhouses in Scotland meet EC standards.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

The Scottish Office does not provide any special financial assistance for compliance with EC standards in slaughterhouses. Advice on these standards is available from the state veterinary service.
