Tight rein on horse scandal

January 2013
Daily Mail;1/19/2013, p25
WHY did the Agriculture Department delay telling Minister Simon Coveney that there was horsemeat in Irish burgers when it first became aware of a problem back in December? Maybe the delay was wise. In December, the department probably had initial indications, but no confirmation, that Irish beef burgers were contaminated. Acting then on just partial information could have unleashed a false alarm with the potential for a massive legal action afterwards. Waiting for confirmation before acting in January was the wiser course. The department thus protected its minister politically by waiting until this week to tell him.
