To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (1) how many poultry are registered on the GB Poultry Register in the avian influenza (a) protection zone, (b) surveillance zone and (c) restricted zone; and how many free range poultry there are in each zone; (166403)

(2) how many holdings are registered on the GB Poultry Register in the avian influenza (a) protection zone, (b) surveillance zone and (c) restricted zone; and how many free range holdings there are in each zone;

(3) how many (a) poultry and (b) free range poultry are registered on the GB Poultry Register in each county;

(4) how many (a) holdings and (b) free range holdings are registered on the GB Poultry Register in each county.

[holding answer 20 November 2007]: On 14 November 2007 the following free range premises were registered on the GB Poultry Register (GBPR):

(i) Protection Zone: 5 premises (including the infected premises) with 36,802 birds. One of these premises, the infected premises, was registered as free range and had a total of 6,800 birds.

(ii) Surveillance Zone: an additional 92 premises with 4,085,476 birds. 38 of these premises were registered as free range and had a total of 167,397 birds.

(iii) Restricted Zone: an additional 1,372 premises with 24,987,220 birds. 473 of these premises were registered as free range and had a total of 2,777, 143 birds.

Some premises cannot currently be assigned a county due to the submission of insufficient and/or inaccurate geographical information. Therefore totals in this table will differ from those quoted above.
