To ask the Secretary of State foc Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many cases of bovine TB there have been in Cumbria in each of the last five years. 
Pursuant to my answer of 4 June 2003, Official Report, column 406W, the table shows the number of new bovine TB herd incidents and confirmed new bovine TB incidents in Cumbria 1998–2002. A TB incident is confirmed if typical lesions are found at post mortem, or if Mycobacterium bovis (the causative organism for bovine tuberculosis) is isolated from tissue samples in laboratory examination.
