HC Deb 10 November 1989 vol 159 c832W
Mr. Hardy

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is his policy in regard to the use of the chemical Nuvan 500 in fish farming.

Mr. Curry

Aquagard sea lice treatment (formerly Nuvan fish 500 EC) is licensed under the Medicines Act 1968 for the treatment of farmed salmon. The terms of the licence include strict conditions which must be observed by the user and are set out in the product labels. These include the need first to obtain a discharge consent from the local water authority. The licence is subject to review in June 1990.
