HC Deb 11 January 2000 vol 342 c154W
Mr. Breed

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has for changes to the Over-Thirty-Months Scheme. [103353]

Ms Quin

In due course (following advice from the Spongiform Encephalopathy Advisory Committee) it may be appropriate to discuss the Over-Thirty-Months Scheme with European partners on the over-thirty-month rule. In the meantime the Government's planning assumption is that the Scheme will continue for the foreseeable future.
