Mr Major’s Comments on the British Beef Ban – 15 May 1996

Below are extracts of Mr Major’s comments on the British beef ban, made outside 10, Downing Street on 15th May 1996.


PRIME MINISTER:

I think it’s extremely important that we get the gelatine, tallow and semen ban lifted, I hope that will happen today.

……

The commission have now decided to propose that the ban is lifted, so on that basis, I see no proper justification for our colleagues in Europe not agreeing with that.
