Temporary control zones

10.—(1) Following the service of a notice under article 5, the Scottish Ministers may, by declaratory order, establish a zone to be known as a “temporary control zone”.

(2) The location and size of the temporary control zone shall be such as the Scottish Ministers consider necessary to prevent the spread of disease.

(3) Where a temporary control zone has been established, no person shall–

(a)move any pig onto or off a holding, slaughterhouse, knacker’s yard or other place within that zone except in accordance with a licence issued by a veterinary inspector or an inspector acting under the direction of a veterinary inspector;

(b)move any cattle, sheep, goat, or other ruminating animal onto or off any holding, slaughterhouse, knacker’s yard or other place within that zone which has pigs in it except in accordance with a licence issued by a veterinary inspector or an inspector acting under the direction of a veterinary inspector; or

(c)move any pig into or out of that zone except in accordance with a licence issued by a veterinary inspector or an inspector acting under the direction of a veterinary inspector.

(4) The restriction in paragraph (3)(c) shall not apply to any pig which is loaded onto a means of transport outside that zone and transported through it by means of an uninterrupted journey without that means of transport being loaded or unloaded.

(5) When a temporary control zone has been established in any part of England which adjoins the border with Scotland, the Scottish Ministers may establish a temporary control zone in Scotland, contiguous to that established in England, as the Scottish Ministers consider necessary.
