To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the estimated cost to the industry of the disposal of fallen stock; and what measures he proposes to take to limit the impact of this cost.

The costs of disposing of fallen stock will vary according to the method, location, nature of the carcase, including species, size and condition and the current market prices for animal by-products. It is for the livestock sector, as with other industries, to find ways of disposing of its waste, and to meet the costs involved.
