HL Deb 16 December 1999 vol 608 c65WA
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.
