Outbreak of avian flu in Britain a concern - Ferris
Sinn Féin agriculture spokesman, Martin Ferris TD, says that he will attempt to raise in the Dáil tomorrow, the outbreak of avian flu in Britain.
Deputy Ferris said:
"This outbreak in Britain comes on the back of two others in Holland and Germany.
"The danger of this flu spreading to Ireland must be addressed. Minister Coveney should be engaging with his counterpart in the North, Michelle O'Neill MLA, to ensure that measures to deal with this outbreak are implemented on an all-Ireland basis."
