Fallen Stock Disposal

EDM number 732 in 2002-03, proposed by Adam Price on 12/02/2003.

That this House notes that following the implementation of the EU Animal By Products Regulations into United Kingdom law, it will be illegal to bury fallen livestock on farms; further notes that the aims of the national collection scheme are to protect the environment and public health; acknowledges that the farming industry accepts the principle of a national collection scheme; contends that the responsibility for financing any national scheme should fall on the Government as is the case with most other livestock producing member states; further notes that the Government's current proposals will cause additional financial problems for beleaguered farmers who are facing their worst crisis since the 1930s; regrets that these extra costs will place Welsh, Scottish, English and Northern Irish farmers at a competitive disadvantage to their European competitors; believes that the industry is in no position to accommodate these proposals; and calls on the Government to postpone the introduction of these regulations until the industry is in a position to accommodate the new regulations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
