Progress is finally being made on introducing a national scheme for collecting fallen stock from farms, according to Scotland's rural development minister, Ross Finnie. He has consistently insisted that a national scheme for all fallen stock could be introduced by expanding the existing transmissible spongiform encephal-opathy scheme, which collects up to 40% of fallen cattle from farms already. Finnie, who now faces a month of campaigning for the Scottish Parliamentary elections on May 1, 2003 said that, ideally, the farmer's fee for a collection scheme should be the same throughout Great Britain. Under EU rules, member states can fund 100% of fallen stock collection costs, but only a maximum of 75% of the disposal costs.
