Meat and Meat Products: Import Monitoring
House of Lords
Baroness Hayman (Minister of State, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food; Labour)
This information is not held centrally. All meat imported from third countries into the UK must enter at designated UK border inspection posts (BIP), where it is subject to veterinary inspections. The inspection services at the BIP and the budgetary control thereof are the responsibility of the local authority.
