F&M aid meetings

MASS meetings are planned for farmers and other rural businesses who have suffered uncompensated losses through foot-and-mouth disease.

The UK Rural Business Campaign will hold the first two in Powys and south-west England on Nov 29, with others to follow in Cumbria and Scotland. The aim is to seek compensation through group legal action, and to challenge the new Animal Health Bill. Full details of meetings will be available on the Internet at www.classlaw.co.uk &#42
