§ Lord Whitty
Dr Iain Anderson's Lessons Learned Inquiry into the foot and mouth outbreak launched its framework document on 14 December, marking the formal start of this independent inquiry.

My right honourable friend the Secretary of Stale welcomes the start of the Lessons Learned Inquiry.

We are contributing fully to the independent inquiry process.
