§ 99. Mrs. Joyce Butler
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will issue a warning to the public to take steps to ensure that there is no excessive use of D.D.T. and other persistent insecticides pending the results of the Advisory Committee on Pesticides and Toxic Chemicals' review of their use.
§ Mr. Hoy
No. Since the publication in 1964 of the Report of the original review of the use of these chemicals, this Department has consistently advised farmers, growers and home gardeners against excessive use of them. The further review by the Advisory Committee will take into account a large amount of new358W evidence. We do not consider that any special additional warnings are necessary at present.
