HC Deb 20 January 1997 vol 288 c499W
Mr. John D. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what estimate he has made of the saving from the proposed closure of the veterinary laboratory at Omagh; and if he will make a statement. [10835]

Mr. Ancram

The proposed closure of the veterinary science division, Omagh laboratory, would have made an annual saving of up to £320,000 in departmental running costs and a one-off saving of approximately £250,000 for the installation of a new incinerator, to meet emission standards required by the anticipated legislation and stemming from Council directive 84/360/EEC.
