"Untested, unvalidated and unproven methods of control" were what led to spiralling costs.

The National Foot and Mouth Group sends this:

2 - 7 February 2005 ~a less effective strategy because of the ability of the disease to leap outside the vaccinated area" (sic)

2 - 7 February 2005 ~ Today's National Audit Office report erroneously suggests that contiguous premises will be slaughtered if a new outbreak got "out of control". How can they have got it so wrong?

2 - 7 February 2005 ~ Today's NAO report looks at the progress made by the Government in implementing changes recommended following the 2001 epidemic.

2 - 7 February 2005 ~ Confusion continues. Ignorance reigns.

2 - 7 February 2005 ~ More than 500 people involved in Hornbeam - but " the value of the Departmentís exercise (Hornbeam) could have been increased by including a simulation at farm level"

2 - 7 February 2005 ~ some £37 million has been spent by the Department in moving some 150,000 tonnes of ash from 200 farm burial sites

2 - 7 February 2005 ~ FPB says the NAO report is flawed ".. as it accepts Defra's findings uncritically."

2 - 7 February 2005 ~ "When we criticised Defra for paying too much, we didnít mean it to stop paying any of its remaining contractors.."
