Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

11. To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on the cross-border variations in emergency animal health measures. (156176)

The Secretary of State and I have regular discussions with the Secretary of State for DEFRA on a range of issues, including animal health measures.

The recent crises in animal health and our Government's reaction prove the seriousness with which we take these issues, and that the procedures in place to deal with such sudden events are working well.
