Stevenson Welcomes Backing For Poultry Industry

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the SNP Spring Conference's backing of a resolution to ensure that the Labour and Lib Dem Government implement all contingency plans effectively and efficiently in order to protect the Scottish poultry industry.

Conference also showed support for Scottish poultry producers calling on the people of Scotland to show support as consumers by continuing to buy Scottish.

Mr Stevenson commented:

"The poultry industry is a very important one to the economy of the North-east and the Scottish Executive must act swiftly to ensure that all existing plans for dealing with the disease in Scotland are quickly implemented.

"We must do all we can to not only protect our poultry industry and the wider rural economy, but to reassure the public that there are no immediate public health concerns related to the incident.

"That's why I welcome conference's support in order that we can all work together and deal with this situation as efficiently and effectively as possible. We must do all we can to ensure Scottish poultry produce continues to be recognised as among the finest in the world and show our support as Scottish consumers by continuing to buy Scottish."

The full text of the topical resolution is as follows:

Conference notes the case of bird flu in Fife and calls on the Scottish Government to implement all contingency plans effectively and efficiently in order to protect the Scottish poultry industry. Conference acknowledges the fact that Scottish poultry, eggs and Scottish produce in general is the finest in the world and encourages Scottish consumers and supermarkets to continue to buy Scottish.
