Calls for Wales-wide housing order to tackle bird flu
Welsh Conservative Samuel Kurtz, Shadow Rural Affairs Minister and MS for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire, called for a Wales-wide housing order. Kurtz originally called for an order on Tuesday during the Minister’s statement, updating the Senedd on the spread of avian flu in Wales. He said:
“With the way avian flu has spread across the UK between wild birds and commercial fowl, a pre-emptive housing order in Wales would give Welsh businesses some level of certainty in an uncertain situation.
“Avian flu doesn’t respect borders, and with so many units close to the English border, and with the potential for further wild bird migration, the Welsh Government’s decision has left Welsh poultry vulnerable to infection.”
