Science and Engineering
Shortly before the 2011 Welsh Assembly elections, the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE) looked at policies of the major Welsh parties, including Welsh Labour: http://sciencecampaign.org.uk/?page_id=4947
The 2011 manifesto states the party would:
- "Take a science-led approach to evaluate and review the best way of tackling Bovine TB." (page 88)
It is not clear exactly what this means in practice. However, in June 2011 John Griffiths, the Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development announced that an independent panel of experts would examine the evidence for badger culling in the control of Bovine TB, and there would be no cull during the review period. "What happens after the review will depend on what report is delivered and what the verdict is."
