Bovine Tuberculosis

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 28 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what percentage of dairy herds in each local authority area are under restrictions following a bovine tuberculosis breakdown. (248789)

Bovine tuberculosis data are only collated on a county or regional basis and therefore it is not possible to break the data down by local authority area or by herd type.

A full county breakdown of TB herd statistics for 1998-2007 is available on the DEFRA website. The latest provisional county and regional statistics for 2008 are also published on the DEFRA website.
