This chapter outlines and analyses the Labour government's response to the Foot and Mouth disease (FMD) epidemic in Great Britain, both during and after the crisis. It evaluates the implications of the response for the subsequent development of agricultural policy and for rural policy more broadly. The chapter highlights the failure of attempts to model the epidemic and its impact and discusses the alienation of rural communities by the government's strategy.

Keywords:   FMD epidemic, Labour government, Great Britain, agricultural policy, rural policy, rural communities
