Foot and Mouth Disease

Foot and Mouth Disease - July 2002

Chaired by Professor Ian Cunningham, this group, with members drawn from veterinary health, medicine, farming, economics, tourism, consumers and the general public, was tasked with conducting a wide-ranging assessment of the impact of the disease on animal health and examining the social and economic consequences of the epidemic on the countryside and on Scotland as a whole.  The report made 27 recommendations including the need to treat future livestock epidemics, not just as an agricultural problem but to take into account wider economic and social aspects.
