UK - At a Defra conference yesterday, Stewart Houston, chairman of BPEX and NPA, proposed a pig industry environment taskforce to deal with the broad sweep of environmental regulation descending on the pig industry.

THE VOICE OF THE UK PIG INDUSTRY

NPA is active on members' behalf in Brussels & Whitehall, and with processors, supermarkets & caterers - fighting for the growth and pros-perity of the UK pig industry.

Currently, he pointed out, environmental directives from Brussels are being dealt with piecemeal, to the detriment of the pig industry.

His concept of developing a pig environment strategy – which he first put to environment minister Ian Pearson several weeks ago - was welcomed by Defra and also by Environment Agency chief executive Barbara Young.

He is keen to see a meeting of all relevant parties before Christmas.
