Badger cull central to policy to rid England of bovine TB by 2038

Posted by Mark Carlisle on May 10th 2018 in AGRICULTURAL AND RURAL AFFAIRS , All .

The government is committed to eradicating bovine TB and sees badger culling as central to that policy, as highlighted in a House of Commons briefing paper published 12 April 2018.

Badger culling has taken place in England since 2011. The government strategy set out the rationale for action to address the problem of bovine TB and the range of measures intended to eradicate it by 2038.

Control of bovine TB is a devolved matter.
