§ Mr. Wallace
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the locations in Wales where shellfish samples were taken for testing for paralytic shellfish poisoning; and what was the frequency of such sampling at these locations in 1991.
§ Mr. David Hunt
During 1991, no specific programme of sampling shellfish for paralytic shellfish poisoning was carried out in Wales. Maritime environmental health departments routinely monitor shellfish for a variety of microbiological and chemical contaminants.
