Injection Of Cows With Bst

EDM number 617 in 1993-94, proposed by Harry Barnes on 15/02/1994.

That this House notes with concern that there is an increase in the incidence of mastitis in dairy cows treated with bovine somatotropin; notes the warning of the European Committee for Veterinary Medicinal Products that, if BST-treated cows are not to suffer, substantial improvements will be needed in husbandry standards and fears that such costly changes may not be practicable for overworked farmers; is concerned that the wholesome image of milk would be tarnished by BST use, leading to a fall in consumption; believes that a product designed to enhance production is out of step with the goal of reducing agricultural surpluses in the European Union; believes that, in the interests of informed consumer choice, milk and other products derived from BST-treated cows should be labelled as such; and urges Her Majesty's Government to support the European Commission's proposal that the moratorium on the use of BST in the European Union be extended until the year 2000.

This motion has been signed by a total of 55 MPs.
