Review for ferry welfare rules

MAFF is reviewing welfare rules for livestock exported on roll on/roll off ferries.

Junior farm minister Angela Browning said MAFF had concluded isolation pens need not be provided on these ferries for sick or injured livestock.

Mrs Browning added, in a written parliamentary answer, that she was now reviewing this position to see if there was anything more MAFF could, or should, do with other member states involved. &#42
