The proposals are contained in a consultation document on sharing responsibility and costs on animal health and welfare policy, published by Defra on Tuesday.

The consultation seeks views on how the farming industry could be further involved in the decision-making process for animal health and welfare policy, such as during disease outbreaks.

It questions whether this should be done through existing structures and organisations or whether new organisational structures should be set up to promote the sharing of responsibility in decision-making.

The consultation also looks at the principles of how the funding for animal health and welfare policy could be shared between Government and the industry in the future.
