Question for written answer E-002651/2012
to the Commission
Rule 117
John Bufton (EFD)

 Subject: Vaccination against SBV
 Answer in writing 

According to the UK National Sheep Association, an SBV vaccine is thought be two years away. Is the Commission funding any efforts to find a vaccine, and if so could it detail where? What is the Commission’s view on a possible date for a vaccine to be brought to market and how would such a vaccine be distributed?

Would farmers be aided with the cost of treatment or prevention of SBV?

Scientists in Germany and the Netherlands are also researching the possibility of creating a blood test to detect SBV. Is the Commission aware of this and is it funding any research to that end?

What measures does the Commission plan to take in order to expedite the development and distribution of a vaccine, such as a possible moratorium on potentially cumbersome regulation?

Is the Commission looking into the possible impact recent and past regulation of pesticides may have had on the spread, or future spread, of vector-borne infection?

Would the Commission regard the distribution of the vaccine for Blue Tongue, a vector-borne livestock disease, as a blueprint for the distribution of a potential SBV vaccination? If not, how might it differ?
