Avian Flu

Asked if we were expecting a ban by the end of the day, and also how did the Government justify its U-turn regarding the import and export of birds, the PMOS replied that in terms of the ban, it was a decision for the EU. Regarding the second part of the question, situations were responded to as they arose. As he said this morning, the important thing to recognise was that the procedure worked. The bird was found and procedures came into effect. Clearly, however, when circumstances change, we review the situation.

Questioned further about the wild bird situation, the PMOS referred the journalist to DEFRA.
