holding answer 7 May 2002

The information requested is not readily available and could not be obtained without disproportionate cost. I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by the Under-Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, my hon. Friend Mr. Morley, on 29 April 2002, Hansard, column 552W, which gave details of the total amount of overnight subsistence for staff working on the foot and mouth crisis.
