While the report acknowledges that the Government acted with greater speed and efficiency this time round, the NFU's assessment is clouded by the fact that the virus escaped from a site licensed and regulated by the Government.

The Prime Minister asked Dr Anderson to conduct a review of this year's outbreak to see whether the lessons from 2001 have been learned and whether there are new lessons from this year's events.

Lesson number one has to be that Government must take the rap for the breaches in security which led to the outbreak in the first place.
