HC Deb 02 July 1987 vol 118 c141W
33. Mr. Ray Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many lambs and sheep are still under restriction for sale in north Wales as a result of the Chernobyl fall-out.

Mr. Peter Walker

About 200,000 sheep are within the areas subject to movement and slaughter restrictions. However, arrangements for these sheep to be marketed following live monitoring, and where necessary marking to prevent slaughter, are available to affected farmers.
