EU relaxes beef export ban

THE worldwide ban on UK beef exports was partially lifted last night at a meeting of European Union farm ministers in Brussels.

Farm ministers decided by 11 votes to 2 that exports of beef from Northern Ireland can resume “within weeks”. Only Germany and Belgium voted against the relaxation of the ban. Luxembourg and Spain abstained.
