Foot and Mouth/Bluetongue

Asked if the Prime Minister was going to be involved in any COBRA meetings about Foot and Mouth/Bluetongue whilst at Party Conference, the PMS replied that was something the Government kept under review; the Prime Minister spoke to Debbie Reynolds this morning for an update on the latest situation in relation to both Foot and Mouth and Bluetongue, so although he was in Bournemouth he was still being kept fully up to date with developments.

Put that there had been tests carried out to determine whether the Bluetongue incident was a single case or an outbreak, it was asked if there was any indication as to when we could expect the test results. The PMS replied that DEFRA had made clear they were not anticipating anything further by way of test results during the course of the day.

Asked if there had been some test results back and when it was likely to be clearer in terms of whether it was a single case or an outbreak, the PMS replied that DEFRA expected to have test results over the next few days but they were not anticipating any new results during the course of today.
