TB eradication must be 'science led' - MP


CLA President William Worsley said: "I am very impressed by the Government’s brave decision to tackle this appalling disease head on. For too long, the scientific advice and escalating costs of Bovine TB have been avoided by politicians.
"Farm businesses have been devastated, communities disrupted and markets distorted by the ineffective handling of Bovine TB by the previous administration.
"There will be relief all round that there is now political will to combat this disease. A cull will form part of a package of measures. It is not about eradicating British wildlife unnecessarily."
