§ Sir David Steel
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received from the Governor of Hong Kong on reform of the present quarantine system. 
§ Mrs. Browning
I am of course aware of the views of the Governor of Hong Kong on this issue, as these have been well reported in the media. I can confirm, however, that he has made no direct representations on this to me, my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food or, to the best of my knowledge, anyone in my Ministry.
