§ Mr. Nicholas Bennett
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what measures are taken by his Ministry, and port or local council officials to ensure that meat landed in Great Britain for onward transhipment to a third country is not sold for use in Great Britain.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
All meat entering Great Britain, whether intended for consumption here or for transhipment to a third country, must comply with our animal and 531W public health requirements. There are no health reasons, therefore, to require that meat in transit is not diverted for sale in Great Britain.
