Glyn Davies, the Montgomeryshire farmer who chairs the Assembly committee, said this week he accepted that Countryside Minister, Carwyn Jones, was acting ‘reasonably’ in deferring his official response to the result of the Wales badger-found-dead survey until January.

While the farming unions had been scathing in their condemnation of what they saw as inaction on the part of the Minister, Mr Davies said he had qualified support for his position and saw January as an acceptable date for a full response.

“I have, however, been deeply disappointed by the slowness with which the governments at both Westminster and Cardiff Bay have got to grips with the problems of bovine TB,” he said.
