Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our plans to license badger disease control measures after a licensed cull. The licence would apply to control measures used after a licensed cull has been completed over at least 4 years.

These changes will prolong the disease control benefits achieved by a culling operation in the longer term. The proposal is part of the government’s TB Strategy to eradicate bovine tuberculosis (TB) in England.
