Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order further partially revokes the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Radioactivity in Sheep) (England) Order 1991 which contains emergency prohibitions restricting various activities in order to prevent human consumption of food which has been or 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 partial revocation reduces the areas subject to the restrictions set out in the principal Order. The last partial revocation was contained in the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Radioactivity in Sheep) (England) (Partial Revocation) Order 1994 (Statutory Instrument 1994 No. 65).
