The government has instructed the Food Standards Agency to send a delegation across the Channel to assess French measures to control BSE. A spokesman said the government had agreed to ask the FSA "to satisfy themselves that the French procedures are adequate". The move came after the discovery last month that a BSE infected carcass had entered the French food chain, and the removal of beef from supermarkets. - European agriculture ministers meeting in Brussels agreed to introduce tests for BSE throughout Europe. {{NEWS }}
