HC Deb 23 April 2002 vol 384 c145W
Mr. Liddell-Grainger

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if she will make a statement on the recovery of Scotland's rural economy from last year's outbreak of foot and mouth disease. [41471]

Mr. Foulkes

2002 will continue to present challenges but I am confident that the FMD recovery measures implemented by the Scottish Executive and the sympathetic approach of the Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise will help the rural economy in Scotland withstand the effects of the outbreak.
