§ Mr. Spence
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, in view of the outbreak of Aujeszky's disease in Yorkshire, if he will expedite the measures to deal with the disease announced on 22 February, Official Report, c. 307; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Fenner
As anticipated in my announcement on 22 February, arrangements to introduce movement controls on holdings where Aujeszky' disease is found to be present and on fattening units taking pigs from such holdings have now been effected through the Aujeszky's Disease of Swine Order 1982. The order was made on 28 April and came into operation on 4 May.
