ABSTRACT
In this article the author presents views regarding the issues mentioned in the 2009 report of Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). It is said that the document gives data on animal health spending incurred by the agency including preventive works on exotic disease outbreaks. Cost and responsibility sharing between Defra and Animal Health is also questioned since Defra admitted to insufficient financial basis to calculate the cost of its disease intervention programmes.
