Suspected animals in markets, shows etc

19.—(1) Where a veterinary inspector reasonably believes that a bovine animal on any premises at which a show, exhibition, market, sale or fair is being held is an affected animal, a suspected animal or has been exposed to infection by tuberculosis, the veterinary inspector may—

(a)by notice served on the keeper of the animal require that animal to be removed from those premises and taken—

(i)to a slaughterhouse for immediate slaughter; or

(ii)back to the premises from which the animal was brought to the show, exhibition, market, sale or fair; or

(iii)to such other premises as may be approved by the veterinary inspector for the purpose; and

(b)by notice served on the person in charge of the premises—

(i)require that person to ensure that any part or parts of the premises specified in the notice are not used by any other bovine animal for such period as may be specified in the notice; and

(ii)require that person within such time and in such manner as may be specified in the notice—

(aa)to cleanse and disinfect with an approved disinfectant such part or parts of the premises as may be specified in the notice; and

(bb)to dispose of any manure, slurry or other animal waste, straw, litter or other matter that has, or might have, come into contact with such animal.

(2) Where a bovine animal is moved in accordance with paragraph (1)(a)(ii) or (iii) the keeper must immediately put it into isolation and must not move it from the premises again except under the authority of a licence issued by an inspector.

(3) If any person on whom a notice is served under paragraph (1)(b) fails to comply with the requirements of the notice, the Welsh Ministers may, without prejudice to any proceedings arising out of such default, carry out or cause to be carried out the requirements of the notice, and the amount of any expenses reasonably incurred by them is recoverable by them from the person in default.
