Written Answers. - Non-Statutory Post-Mortems.

53. Mr. J. O'Keeffe asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that all non-statutory post-mortems have now ceased at the Cork Regional Veterinary Laboratory; and if he will outline the steps he is taking to resolve the problem.

Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): I am aware that due to action taken by the Veterinary Officers Association, certain difficulties did arise in relation to the carrying out of non-statutory post-mortems, at the Cork Regional Veterinary Laboratory.

I understand that such post-mortems are being carried out in the normal way at present.
