§ Mr. Lidington
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment she has made of the biosecurity risks associated with a national carcase collection service. 
§ Mr. Morley
No formal assessment has been made of the biosecurity risks of a national carcase collection service. However, we would expect that only those collectors who follow agreed biosecurity procedures would be allowed to participate in such a scheme. Animal By-Products legislation already controls the collection, storage and transportation of animal by-products, including animal carcases, it also requires464W records to be kept of any consignment of animal byproducts to assist in the auditing and traceability of this material.
