HC Deb 16 December 1999 vol 341 c284W
Mr. Dobbin

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he will bring further areas into the badger culling trial recommended by Professor Krebs to address questions about the incidence of tuberculosis in cattle. [103366]

Ms Quin

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.
