§ Mr. Jamieson
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what assessment has been made of the effectiveness of a cattle blood test for TB; and if a fully substantiated case can be made to the European Union to obtain agreement to its use. 
§ Mr. Ancram
The Department of Agriculture for Northern Ireland recently undertook a major field trial on the development of a blood test for TB and the results of the trial are currently being evaluated. If these show that the development of a blood test is viable, a case will be made to the European Union to have the test approved for use in Northern Ireland.
