ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the proposals of the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (Defra) in Great Britain concerning the consultation on responsibility and cost sharing on animal health. The author considers the proposals as a significant issue, but should not overshadow the proposals for an independent body to monitor animal health. The author states that the responsibilities of the new body as well as its relationships with other bodies should be clearly defined.
