HC Deb 15 December 1999 vol 341 c230W
Mr. Luff

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if(a) chicken meat and (b) chicken products imported from Thailand and Brazil are produced from animals raised using antibiotics that are banned in the European Union; and if he will make a statement. [100403]

Ms Quin

The details of antibiotics authorised for use in Thailand and Brazil are not currently available. However, like all other third countries that wish to export meat and other animal products to the EU, Thailand and Brazil are required to submit to the European Commission their plans for testing for residues of veterinary medicinal products including antibiotics.
