Beef exports face ten-week delay

UK - The resumption of beef exports from the UK - a trade potentially worth £150 million to the Scottish economy - is unlikely before late March 2006, and that date may be optimistic. Following extensive checks over the summer by EU health and veterinary authorities, it was thought exports would resume early next year. Since March 1996, when it was suggested that there was a link between BSE and variant CJD, only very small quantities of beef have been exported, and then under conditions that made the trade highly marginal in terms of profitability.
