    RECOMMENDATIONS

         The Meeting reviewed the data on residues in carcase meat of
    sheep in 19811 and concluded that an estimated maximum residue level
    of 0.1 mg/kg was more appropriate than the figure of 0.2 mg/kg
    previously estimated. After a re-examination of residue data on
    cucumbers, the Meeting re-affirmed the estimate of 0.5 mg/kg as a
    maximum residue limit.
