Measures in protection zones

(a)disapply one or more of the measures in Schedule 4 to movements of racing pigeons into, from and within the zone;

(b)disapply one or more of the measures in paragraph 14 of Schedule 4 and in article 63(2) if—

(b)a veterinary inspector examines poultry and other captive birds at all such premises, carrying out examinations at commercial premises as soon as possible.

(5) The National Assembly may, notwithstanding paragraph (4)(b), authorise a reduced level of surveillance to that provided for in that paragraph if—
