Labour controlled Carmarthenshire Council has resisted demands from Plaid Cymru and Independent councillors to immediately end the ban on beef in school menus, reports The Western Mail (p3).
The authority agreed yesterday to consult governing bodies on lifting the ban, or whether to restrict it to beef products.
Education director Keith Davies said if the ban was lifted beef would only be bought from local markets, and audit checks would be taken on supplies.
Plaid Cymru prospective parliamentary candidate Glyn Thomas accused the council of playing politics with the economy by not lifting the ban immediately.
'All the evidence shows that Carmarthenshire beef is safer than anywhere in the world and everybody else is returning to eating beef,' he said.
