Institute for Animal Health response
17 October 2008
We confirm that proceedings have been issued against the Institute for Animal Health by various persons seeking damages arising from the outbreak of FMD in 2007. The claim, which appears to us to be speculative, will be defended. We will issue further statements when we have something additional to say.
