Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs by what means his Department’s health and welfare strategy indicators will be reported on (a) where the species of animal concerned is not covered by a sector council established under the England Implementation Group (EIG) and (b) following the disbandment of the EIG. (318782)

Arrangements for monitoring the Animal Health and Welfare Strategy are under review following the disbandment of the England Implementation Group. A decision has not yet been made on whether these indicators will continue to be updated in future. The last update of the Animal Health and Welfare Strategy Indicators was in autumn 2008 and is available on the DEFRA website.
