HC Deb 17 June 1997 vol 296 c153W
Mrs. Gillan

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to review the briefings on BSE and the selective cull which are given by veterinary officers of his Department; and if he will make a statement. [4055]

Mr. Rooker

Veterinary officers do, in the course of their duties, discuss BSE and the selective cull with individual farmers and from time to time at other meetings. I am not aware of any need to review the way in which this is done, but if the hon. Member has something particular in mind, I would be more than happy to discuss any points she wishes to put to me on this.

Forward to
