§ 14. Mr. David Marshall
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make it his332W policy to ban the brain and spinal cords of calves under the age of six months from going into human food. 
§ Mrs. Browning
In a large experimental study of the pathogenesis of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in cattle, no infectivity has been demonstrated in the brain and spinal cord in calves two and six months after oral challenge with a large dose of BSE-infected cow brain at four months of age. We would, of course, act in response to scientific advice if there were to be any new evidence.
