HC Deb 26 July 1999 vol 336 cc141-2W
Mr. Stephen Twigg

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what response the Government have received to the submission on recommendation 69 on TB and badgers, which they made to the Standing Committee to the Bern Convention. [93603]

Mr. Nick Brown

Following submission of the document in April, the UK Government has responded to a number of subsequent questions from the Secretariat to the Bern Convention and has supplied additional technical information. At the request of the Secretariat, the information has been consolidated into a single document, which has been forwarded to the Secretariat and is now being sent to delegates of the Standing Committee. A copy of this latest document, which supersedes the earlier one, has been placed in the Library of the House.
