Motion text

That this House shares the concern of the UK livestock industry about the continuation of the 20 day rule and notes its more flexible application in Scotland; and calls upon the Government to examine the exemption process with a view to a more flexible and less bureaucratic regime which provides greater support for English and Welsh farmers who otherwise will be obliged either to break the law or face commercial ruin.
