Motion text

That this House believes that the economic, social and emotional costs of livestock disease fall most heavily on farmers, their families and their communities; recalls the huge cost to rural communities of the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001; notes the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs consultation which focuses on the financial cost of animal disease outbreaks; and opposes any move to place an animal disease levy on farmers, as this would add insult to injury in cases of future outbreaks of disease.
