Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order partially revokes the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Radioactivity in Sheep) Order 1991 which contains emergency prohibitions restricting various activities in order to prevent human consumption of food which has been, or which may have been, rendered unsuitable for that purpose in consequence of the escape of radioactive substances from a nuclear reactor situated at Chernobyl in the Ukraine.
This Order reduces the area subject to restriction.
