Avian Flu-Compensation

The Leader was asked about a report that the owner of the affected turkey firm in Norfolk was in line for more than £600,000 compensation. He said he could not confirm the figures. Asked further if it was appropriate that compensation should be paid, Mr Straw said that it depended on the specific circumstances and what culpability – if any – attached. It was a matter for the Secretary of State for Defra. The Leader said he was not in a position to comment on the particular case.

Mr Straw then responded to further questions about party matters.
