HC Deb 28 January 1992 vol 202 c528W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what regulations United Kingdom food exporters specialising in the export of meat have to observe when exporting to Ghana; and what procedures enable intervention beef to be exported to Ghana by British export companies.

Mr. Maclean

There are no specific regulations governing the export of meat from the United Kingdom to Ghana. Exporters must comply with the relevant Ghanaian import requirements. To enable British exporters to satify these requirements the Agriculture Departments can provide veterinary certificates confirming the health status of the meat, based on our current understanding of the Ghanaian import conditions.

EC export refunds are available for open market and intervention beef sent to Ghana, subject to compliance with normal Community rules.
