Dwight said: “Af­ter the first Poul­try Club meet­ing of the year held on Jan­uary 10, the pri­or­ity was avian in­fluenza and how we as a club deal with it. Fel­low coun­cil mem­ber Lee Grant and I have been made the PCGB li­ai­son of­fi­cers with DE­FRA. We are ac­tively look­ing to ar­range a meet­ing, when we’ll dis­cuss a num­ber of items, in­clud­ing bet­ter in­for­ma­tion for all poul­try

keep­ers, when the ban could con­ceiv­ably be lifted (con­sid­er­ing re­stric­tions on the free range poul­try in­dus­try), and con­firm­ing the best ways in which keep­ers can pro­tect their pure breeds in the event of an area-wide cull – ob­vi­ously this is only rel­e­vant if those birds aren’t di­rectly af­fected. We will keep all poul­try keep­ers abreast of all the lat­est de­vel­op­ments, both on our web­site and in the poul­try press.”
