HC Deb 05 November 1992 vol 213 c340W
26. Mr. Eric Clarke

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food by what date he expects bovine spongiform encephalopathy to be eradicated from cattle.

Mr. Soames

I am confident that the measures taken by the Government should be sufficient to bring about the disappearance of BSE. There are already encouraging signs to support this view, but it is impossible to predict how long this process will take.
