Consultation response

Writing about web page

Along with some colleagues from the Governance of Livestock Diseases project, I have responded to DEFRA’s consultation on the livestock movement regulations. Our response should be linked above, with a bit of luck!

Our basic point is that we agree that simplifying the livestock movement regulations, and removing some of the more daft exceptions is a sound idea, but that it’s important to think about what the rules are for whilst revising them. Collecting accurate and comprehensive livestock movement data doesn’t just keep researchers happy, it enables a sound evidence base for disease control policy to be developed, and is vital during a disease outbreak.

I look forward to seeing the outcome of the consultation exercise, and seeing how the new government actually goes about implementing change.
