Consultation Response Published

On the future delivery of scanning surveillance for animal related threats in England and Wales.

Thank you for participating in the consultation. AHVLA has published a summary of the responses to the consultation on the future delivery of scanning surveillance for animal related threats in England and Wales. The consultation took place between 13 December 2012 and 15 February 2013 and responses were gathered through an online survey and ten facilitated workshops held across England and Wales. The option of contributing written responses was also offered. In total over 370 responses were received. A summary of the responses can be found at: http://www.defra.gov.uk/ahvla-en/about-us/consultations/surveillance-2014-and-beyond/

The responses are being considered by the Surveillance 2014 Project in drawing up the future plan.  The Animal Health and Welfare Board for England will also need to consider the resulting plan in detail before it can then proceed for consideration by Defra Ministers – in parallel with Ministerial consideration in Wales.

Kind regards
