§ 35. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress is being made with plans to increase brucellosis eradication areas.
§ Mr. Strang
Plans to extend eradication areas in 1975 to 1977 were announced on 20th December 1974. The new eradication areas planned for 1975 have already been brought into operation and my right hon. Friend will shortly be making an order which will schedule the eradication areas planned for 1976. In addition, a comprehensive review of the brucellosis eradication arrangements is being conducted and we hope to make a further announcement on this before the end of the year.
