§ Mrs. Browning
In his reply of 14 December to the hon. Member for Pendle (Mr. Prentice)Official Report, column 1094, my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food gave the number of cases of BSE confirmed in the United Kingdom up to 8 December 1995 as 155,832. This was incorrect as the information given was for Great Britain and not the United Kingdom. The number of cases which has been confirmed in the United Kingdom at that date was 157,480.
Up to 15 December 1995, 157,767 cases of BSE had been confirmed in the United Kingdom, and of these 133,849 were confirmed in England, 7,508 in Scotland, 14,757 in Wales, and 1,653 in Northern Ireland.
Details of confirmed BSE cases are not recorded in a manner which permits retrieval in the format requested with respect to sex of the affected animal. For Great Britain and Northern Ireland, up to 15 December 1995, the available data can be broken down as follows:
