To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the estimated cost of the disposal per tonne of cattle carcases(a) by incineration, (b) by landfill and (c) by other means. [10342]

Mr. Baldry

The disposal of cattle carcases by direct incineration costs around £160 per tonne. Landfill, where this is an appropriate means of disposal, costs around £40 per tonne. Rendering followed by incineration of the resultant meat and bonemeal and tallow costs around £315 per tonne.
