§ Lord Graham of Edmonton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they will bring further areas into the badger culling trial recommended by Professor Krebs to address quest ions about the incidence of tuberculosis in cattle. [HL422]
§ Baroness Hayman
The Government are committed to a wide-ranging research and control strategy to find a science-based solution to TB in cattle. The badger culling trial is an important element of that strategy. I am pleased to announce that the sixth set of trial areas will be located in west Cornwall and that work is progressing on identifying the remaining areas.
