To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the latest position on the combating of willow watermark disease.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him on 15 November 1989 at column 336.There has been a significant and welcome reduction in the incidence of the disease, largely as a result of control measures carried out under the Watermark Disease (Local Authorities) Order 1986 and its predecessors.
