The AHWBE recommends that Defra conducts a short study of TB compensation arrangements to consider:

  • how compensation could be refined so that payments for some categories more closely reflect market values
  • more effective ways to encourage and reward good practices

The Defra study team will report back to TBEAG and then AHWBE.
