(2) By way of derogation from the preceding paragraph, the National Assembly or the Secretary of State may by licence in writing authorise the dispatch of biungulate animals originating outside the restricted area if the animals travelled through that area in direct and uninterrupted transit on main roads or by rail or sea.

(3) Without prejudice to the provisions of Council Directive 64/432/EEC and the restriction on movement imposed under the Foot-and-Mouth Disease Order 1983, the prohibition in paragraph (1) shall not apply in relation to the dispatch of live porcine animals under the following conditions—

(e)no animal of species susceptible to foot-and-mouth disease has been introduced into the holding during the past 30 days prior to loading, except in the case of pigs coming from a supplying holding which meets the requirements laid down in sub-paragraph (d), in which case the period shall be 7 days;

(f)during transport the animals must not come into contact with animals not from the same holding of dispatch, unless all the animals are consigned for direct slaughter, in which case they may be collected during the journey from not more than three holdings which meet the requirements of sub-paragraph (d);

(g)animals for breeding or production must not be consigned to more than three holdings of destination, which must all be in the same Member State;

(h) animals must be transported in means of transport that have been cleansed and disinfected before loading or collecting for dispatch;

(i)the health certificates provided for in Council Directive 64/432/EEC accompanying the animals shall bear the following words—
