               are prohibited on imports into the United Kingdom and
               notifiable when found;

       -        remove the requirement for radishes and horseradishes
               imported from the Netherlands to be free of leaves;

       -        expand the provisions relating to the importation of
               specified cut flowers which may host Liriomyza huidobrensis
