The Government will continue to deliver its manifesto commitment to implement its 25-year strategy to eradicate TB in England. This includes strengthening cattle testing and movement controls, improving biosecurity on farm and when trading, and badger control in areas where TB is rife. The Government currently spends around £100 million per year controlling TB in England.
