§ Mr. Whitehead
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what were the results of field evaluations carried out into Armillatox by his Department during 1975.
§ Mr. Strang
This product was cleared for safety under the Pesticides Safety Precautions Scheme in 1971 so I assume that my hon. Friend is referring to field 369W evaluations of its efficacy under the voluntary approval scheme. No such field evaluations of Armillatox were carried out by my Department in 1975; nor does the Department normally undertake work of this kind under the scheme.
