Beef ban could be gone within the year – Cunningham



FARM minister Jack Cunningham hopes that the beef ban could be lifted for the entire UK before the end of this year.


He said getting the ban lifted for the whole UK did not rely on the computerised cattle tracking system at Workington – even though that will be up and running within the next few months.


“We already have a paper-based traceability system for animals and we already have under consideration a second scheme based on the date of August 1, 1996,” he said.
