§ Mr. Meale
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is his policy towards European Community directive 90/667/EEC and specifically to the exemption that allows high-risk animal waste material to be used by hunt kennels and maggot farms; and what assessment he has made of the impact of this provision on human or animal health.679W
§ Mr. Gummer
I welcome the fact that the directive includes provisions to permit the continuation of operations of this kind. It will be essential for such establishments to be subject to controls that safeguard human and animal health.
