Interview with Agriculture Secretary, John Gummer, following concern over milk that has been contaminated with lead due to animals eating imported animal feed. Over five hundred farms are now under Government orders banning the movement of cattle and stopping sale of milk. So far at least thirty cows have died. Gummer says it is a serious problem but there is no reason to believe any members of the public will suffer health problems. Male interviewer not identified. Broadcast on LBC FM Breakfast.
