Nick Requests Update on Bovine TB Measures for Local Farmers

Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, once again raised the concerns of local farmers at the Assembly during last week’s Business Statement.

Speaking in the Senedd Nick said: “It was the Usk Show recently—a very well attended event—and farmers there raised the issue of bovine TB with me and are concerned about recent increases in that disease. If we could have an update from the Welsh Government on efforts taken to tackle the disease, both in livestock but also in the animal reservoir.”

Rebecca Evans AM responded to Nick as follows: “In terms of bovine TB, I know the Minister for environment and rural affairs does provide regular updates to the Assembly on that issue and I know that she'll seek to provide a further update as and when she's able to.”
