  179.  Mr. Bradford  Information on Paul Bradford  Zoom on Paul Bradford   asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry  Information on Ivan Yates  Zoom on Ivan Yates   his views on whether the beef slaughter premium should be paid in respect of animals slaughtered in private registered abattoirs for domestic home consumption; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3932/95]

Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. Yates): Information on Ivan Yates  Zoom on Ivan Yates  Animals slaughtered in privately owned local abattoirs are not eligible for the deseasonalisation slaughter premium because my Department does not operate veterinary controls at such plants.

I am, however, reviewing the arrangements to see whether in the future it may be possible to apply the scheme to the small number of steers slaughtered in such abattoirs.
