§ 26. Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress he has made in the steps he is taking designed to ensure that, despite the EEC directive to the contrary, the sale of uneviscerated (New York dressed) poultry may continue in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
Under the present terms of the directive the sale of uneviscerated poultry would have to be discontinued from February 1978. We are seeking a postponement of this date for the New York dressed poultry trade. The matter has been under consideration in the Commission and we are pressing for a decision.
