Title
Defining animal health and welfare : consultation on the draft Animal Health Bill 2010
Description
The purpose of this paper is to provide commentary and analysis on the Draft Animal Health Bill 2010 as part of the consultation process organised by DEFRA. The Bill has four parts and six schedules and it proposes radical changes in the regulation of animal health, building on the main primary legislation, the Animal Health Act 1981. The major change is in the introduction of a new Animal Health Organisation (AHO) responsible for animal health policy and related functions.
