HL Deb 18 October 1999 vol 605 c100WA
The Earl of Kimberley

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether France is preventing British beef from being transported by road through France on its way to Spain and Italy; and, if so, what action they propose to take. [HL4127]

Baroness Hayman

France lifted its ban on the transport of UK beef through its territory on 12 October. The Government are now pressing for the lifting of the remainder of the French import ban.
