Civil Service Speak...
« on: November 18, 2011, 05:37:58 pm »
Quote from Defra newsletter today

"Changes to rules on Scrapie
Following the resolution of a lengthy EU court case, Defra has decided to apply more proportionate controls in sheep flocks and goat herds with classical scrapie. Instead of totally or partially killing out these flocks and herds it will restrict and test animals for two years after the detection of the last classical scrapie case."

Do you sort of get the idea they maybe lost the court case??  Wording would make Sir Humfrey proud !!

Is it right for vets to speak out on animal welfare issues?
