asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied with the method of testing land for infestation of potato root eel worm.

I am satisfied that the soil sampling method used, which is statistically designed and internationally accepted, is reliable in detecting significant levels of this pest. No sampling method can guarantee complete freedom from infestation.
