Motion text

That this House notes the remarkable success of the quarantine laws in keeping rabies out of Britain; expresses its grave concern over suggestions that the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, under pressure from the European Commission, may be required to relax the regulations; and trusts that the Ministry will take a robust stance in defending the British Isles from rabies, which is still prevalent on the mainland of Europe.
