Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Warble Fly (Scotland) Order 1982 (“the 1982 Order”) by providing that where, on examination by a veterinary inspector, blood samples taken from cattle are found to indicate warble fly infestation in those cattle, he may serve a notice in Form A—
(i)on the owner or person in charge of those cattle,
(ii)on the owner or person in charge of any other cattle which are kept on the same premises as those cattle, and
(iii)on the owner or person in charge of any cattle which are kept on any premises which are within a 3 km radius of the premises on which those cattle are kept (article 2(c)).
The Order also empowers a veterinary inspector, where he is satisfied that any cattle infected with the warble fly are or have within the previous 56 days been present on any premises, to serve a notice in Form A on the owner or person in charge of any cattle which are kept on any premises which are within a 3 km radius of the premises on which the infected cattle are or have been present (article 2(b)).
A notice in Form A will require the treatment of the cattle to which that notice relates and will prohibit the movement of those cattle except under licence (article 6 of the 1982 Order).
