The Morecambe & Lunesdale MP David Morris will tomorrow lead a Westminster Hall debate calling for the vaccination of Badgers.
David Morris MP is currently working with a group of animal rights activists called Team Badger and has met with their spokesman Dr. Brian May CBE.
Team Badger is offering to fund a vaccination programme and will be recruiting volunteers to administer the vaccine. This will offer a cheaper and more humane alternative to the cull, David Morris hopes that DEFRA will adopt this approach.
Speaking from Westminster David Morris MP said:
“I will be asking DEFRA to consider Team Badger’s proposal of the community vaccinating badgers.”
“ This is a more human and less expensive alternative to the cull and I will be keen to hear the Minister’s thoughts during the debate.”
