HC Deb 12 March 1998 vol 308 c301W
Mr. Paterson

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many cases of BSE have been confirmed in live dairy stock imported from EU countries.[33878]

Mr. Rooker

We have confirmed BSE in five dairy animals imported from other Member States. These animals are classified by the type of herd in which they resided at the time the disease was reported. It is possible that all five animals were infected with BSE in the UK.
