David Byrne welcomes lifting of British beef embargo by France

David Byrne, Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection, commented today on the decision of the French government to lift the embargo on British beef: "I welcome the decision of the French government to lift the ban. I am glad that the validity of the EU scientific opinion has been vindicated."

Note to Editors:

Since 1 August 1999 British beef can be exported under the so-called DBES system (date-based export scheme) which sets strict conditions (for example only deboned meat of bovines between 6-30 months of age complying with very detailed requirements and originating in dedicated meat plants).
