Mr. Wyatt

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what primates were brought into this country through Dover on 3 February having sailed on the 'Cap Afrique' from Dunkirk; what was their(a) origin and (b) destination; and what arrangements were made for their welfare during their journey.

Ms Quin

I have been asked to reply.

According to our records, 60 primates from Mauriti us came into Dover on 3 February. These were inspected by a veterinary surgeon at the quarantine premises which was their destination and were found to have travelled well with no signs of ill health or disease. According to Home Office records the ship on which they arrived was the 'Cap Afrique.'
