I am very grateful for the work of Professor Sir Charles Godfray and his team in exploring how we might accelerate progress in tackling Bovine TB. This is a terrible disease which creates considerable trauma in the farming industry and is very difficult to eradicate for a number of reasons. Sir Charles’s review is an important contribution. The Government will publish its response shortly.
