As farm ministers prepare to meet in Brussels next week to discuss the growing BSE problem, European Union Commissioner David Byrne, Europe's Health and Consumer Protection Minister declared: 'There is no such thing as risk-free. I don't think any member state can say that. We can say that we are trying to reduce the risks to the minimum but there is no such thing as risk-free.' Meanwhile UK Agriculture Minister Nick Brown has signalled his willingness to defy Europe by introducing a ban on French beef, but only if advisers warn that the public was at risk from a BSE threat.
