The article reports that chief veterinary officer Debby Reynolds is optimistic that foot-and-mouth has been contained in Surrey, England and has further relaxed the animal movement limitations across Great Britain. It cites that Reynolds set out a timetable for more general movements to resume. Collection centers may be utilized for gathering animals going direct to slaughter. According to Peter Kendall of the National Farmers Union (NFU), the publication of the timetable will allow farmers to plan their marketing in a more consistent way.
