asked Her Majesty's Government:
How the United Kingdom's system of monitoring meat imports compares with the Swedish and Danish systems; and whether United Kingdom resource devoted to monitoring meat imports exceed Swedish and Danish resources, both absolutely and as a proportion of government expenditure.
This information is not available and could not be obtained without disproportionate cost. All meat imported into the European Union from third countries must enter at designated border inspection posts (BIP), where it is subject to veterinary inspections. The European Commission is responsible for ensuring that the inspection facilities and services at BIPs in all member states are adequate.
