What medium-term plans does the Welsh Government have for allowing non-commercial smallhold chicken owners to have avian flu restrictions lifted and become free-range again?

Answered by Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd | Answered on 27/03/2023

We continue to monitor the disease situation to ensure that the Avian Influenza control measures in place in Wales are appropriate for the level of risk we face.

This includes work to develop a risk-based exit strategy for the measures implemented under the Avian Influenza Prevention Zone, working closely with the other UK Administrations.
