(b)     except under and in accordance with a permit in writing granted by or on behalf of the Minister, the diseased or suspected horse shall not be moved out of the place of detention:

Provided that this requirement shall not apply to the movement for the purpose of being worked, for a period not exceeding 24 hours, of a diseased or suspected horse which, within the 7 days next preceding the movement, has been treated with a dressing or other remedy for disease approved for that purpose by the Minister;

(c)     except under and in accordance with a permit in writing granted by or on behalf of the Minister, no horse shall be moved out of the place of detention:

Provided that this requirement shall not apply to the movement, for a period not exceeding 24 hours, of a horse, not being a diseased or suspected horse, which, within the 7 days next preceding the movement, has had its skin treated all over with some dressing or other remedy for disease approved for that purpose by the Minister;

(d)     no horse shall be allowed to stray out of the place of detention nor from any part of those premises on which it is being worked.

(2)    A notice under this Article shall remain in force until withdrawn by or on behalf of the Minister.

4      Treatment of diseased or suspected horses and of other horses in a place of detention

The occupier of any premises in respect of which there has been served a notice under Article 3 shall, if so required by or on behalf of the Minister, treat a diseased or suspected horse and any other horse in the place of detention in such manner and with such dressing or other remedy as may be so required, and it shall be the duty of the occupier of those premises to comply with the requirement.

5      Provision for detention and treatment of horses exposed to infection

(1)    Where the Minister considers it necessary so to do for preventing the spreading of disease, he or she may cause to be served on the owner or person having the charge of a horse which the Minister had reason to believe has been in contact with a diseased or suspected horse or has been otherwise exposed to the infection of disease, a notice requiring that the horse –

(a)     shall be treated twice, with an interval of 7 days between the 2 treatments, with a dressing or other remedy for disease approved by the Minister;

(b)     shall not be moved out of the premises specified in the notice:

Provided that this prohibition shall not apply to the movement, for a period not exceeding 24 hours, of a horse for the purpose of being worked where, within the 7 days next preceding the date of such movement, the horse has been treated with a dressing or other remedy for disease approved by the Minister, and provided also that the horse shall not be moved into any stable, shed, field or other premises upon which horses are kept,

(a)     the place shall be swept out, and all litter and sweepings shall forthwith be burned or well mixed with quicklime and then effectually removed from contact with horses;

(b)     the floor of the place and all other parts thereof with which a diseased or suspected horse has come in contact shall be thoroughly washed, scrubbed or scoured with water and then thoroughly coated or washed with an approved disinfectant;

(c)     every utensil, manger, feeding-trough, pen, hurdle, harness, article of clothing or other thing used for or about a diseased or suspected horse shall, as soon as practicable after being so used and before being used for or about any other horse, be cleansed by being thoroughly washed, scrubbed or scoured with water and thereafter thoroughly coated or washed with an approved disinfectant.

(2)    In the case of a field or other place which is not capable of being cleansed and disinfected in the manner prescribed by this Article, it shall be a sufficient compliance with the provisions of this Article if such field is cleansed and disinfected to the satisfaction of the Veterinary Officer.

(3)    Where the occupier of any premises to which this Article relates fails to carry out, or cause to be carried out, any measures of cleansing and disinfection prescribed by this Article, the Minister may, without prejudice to any proceedings for an offence in respect of such default, cause such cleansing and disinfection to be carried out and may recover from that occupier, as a civil debt, the expenses of such cleansing and disinfection.
