Baroness Masham of Ilton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there will be a national scheme for genotyping female sheep in 2003. [HL4984]

Lord Whitty

A ewe genotyping service operated under the National Scrapie Plan for Great Britain between December 2002 and 31 March 2003. We are currently considering the costs and benefits of operating a successor scheme late this year.
