Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
was a UK government department, dealing with agriculture
safety. It was widely criticised for its handling of the BSE
crisis and later the foot and mouth
epidemic, and its functions were transferred to the new Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Its dissolution leaves only one ministry left in the UK government, the Ministry of Defence.
