Welsh Lib Dem Leader Kirsty Williams challenged Labour’s Deputy Minister for Farming and Food in the Senedd as she told AMs of the news. The Deputy Minister refused to admit how long she’d known of these problems.
Kirsty Williams AM, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, said:
“This news effectively leaves Labour’s entire bTB eradication plan in tatters. The world-wide shortage of the BCG vaccine for humans is well-known, so why Labour hadn’t put a contingency plan in place is baffling.
“Labour Ministers are refusing to admit how long they’ve known about these problems. The farmers of Wales deserve answers from this farcical Labour Government, but they obviously won’t get them from Ministers anytime soon.”
