Motion text

That this House notes that the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman's investigation into the pigswill ban following the discovery of foot and mouth disease in 2001 concluded that there had been two counts of maladministration; finds it surprising that no recommendation was made to compensate pigswill feeders; and calls on the Government to consider compensating the 62 farmers who were part of the Ombudsman's inquiry.
