As part of the Committee’s Review into Bovine TB, Mr Nicholson will outline the legal and technical issues relating to a potential vaccination against the disease.  He will update the Committee on the European Commission’s proposals to reform the CAP as well as how legislation, relevant to the agriculture industry, is implemented across the EU.
