Government mauled on FMD
Tuesday 16 July

THE Government's handling of last year's foot and mouth crisis will receive a severe mauling today with the issue of a report by the independent and highly respected Royal Society, Britain's oldest and much respected scientific body.

The report will say that the Government should has used vaccination, rather than the slaughter of seven million animals, to control the disease - and also attacks ministers for failing to call in the Army sooner for fear of creating a mood of crisis as a general election approached.

This comes of a day of decidedly luke-warm welcomes from countryside bodies for yesterday's public spending review (see News).
