Sir: One hardly needs to ask if members of the National Federation of Badger Groups would welcome into their families a person spreading TB, but astonishingly they demand that dairy and beef farmers should accept the equivalent of that in their livestock herds, where TB-infected badgers are proved to be present on their land.

The need for food to be free of the infection and the welfare of those who work very hard producing it appears to be shaded out of the picture by impractical sentimentality.
