This article reports on a warning issued by the Scottish government in 2008 that farmers will face fines or custodial sentences if they fail to comply with laws designed to stop bluetongue virus spreading to Scotland. Richard Lochhead, cabinet secretary for rural affairs, outlined additional checks on livestock coming to Scotland from British bluetongue-restricted zones. Animals will be checked to ensure that all necessary conditions have been met and that pre-movement testing has taken place.
