Red Meat Industry (Wales) Measure 2010

Section 1 – Meaning of the “red meat industry”

2.This section defines what is meant by the term ‘red meat industry’ as it applies in this context, that is, breeding, keeping, processing, marketing and distribution of cattle, sheep and pigs (both alive and dead) and any products substantially derived from such animals.

3.Some activities are not covered by this Measure because there are separate arrangements for the support and development of those products such as milk and milk products and fleece wool which are under the responsibility of Dairy UK and the Wool Marketing Board respectively. Hides are not covered as these have never considered to be part of the red meat industry but to be one element of the knackery trade which is not subject to levy.

4.The Measure provides that the scope of the application of the powers available under the Measure are to be applied differently to the three key sectors.
