§ 38. Mr. Ralph Howell
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied that adequate precautions are taken to ensure that imported cattle, which may be infected with brucellosis, do not enter disease-free areas; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Mills
The movement of cattle, whether home-bred or imported, into brucellosis eradication areas is controlled under the provisions of the Brucellosis (Area Eradication) Orders. My right hon. Friend is satisfied that these controls provide effective safeguards against the introduction of brucellosis into these areas by imported cattle.
