Census holds disease-spread danger

TONY BLAIR and Nick Brown told us on Monday (09 April) to restrict farm-to-farm traffic (Farmers blamed as epidemic spread, FWi, 09 April, 2001).

Perhaps they should have told our census man, who was going farm-to-farm with his forms last Friday.

I complained to his boss, so hopefully he has got the message, but if there was anything on any of the farms he has already visited, it is too late.

I hope it was just this person who did not understand (he told my wife it was OK because he did not get out of his car – just as well he did not see me) and the others are being careful.

Has anyone else had a similar problem?
