asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many toxicologists there were in his Department on 1 April in each of the years 1970 to 1980.

My Department receives toxicological advice mainly from the Department of Health and Social Security's committee on toxicity and from various other specialist committees. As a result, there are few posts in my Department specifically assigned to this discipline. I shall give details of them in a further reply as soon as possible.
