asked Her Majesty's Government:Why the special meeting on 2, 4, 5-T called by the Advisory Committee on Toxic Substances was cancelled and why the subject is now to be dealt with at the ordinary meeting of the committee in November.

I am informed by the chairman of the Health and Safety Commission that the special meeting of the Advisory Committee on Toxic Substances arranged to take place on 16th September 1980 to discuss the health hazards of the herbicide 2, 4, 5-T was cancelled because an insufficient number of members was able to attend on that date to provide an adequate spread of representation. The meeting was subsequently deferred until 10th November 1980, the date of the next general meeting, as this was found to be the earliest date on which an acceptable level of attendance could be achieved.
