A Roscommon TD has called on the Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine, Charlie McConalogue, to reconvene a meeting of the TB Forum as a matter of urgency.

Independent TD Michael Fitzmaurice says there needs to be immediate dialogue and discussion.

He is calling for the representatives from all the various farm organisations to brought round the table to aid discussions and for it chaired by the Agriculture Minister.

Deputy Fitzmaurice says it appears as if recent discussions, particularly the move to issue TB letters to farmers last week, were rammed through by the department without sufficient consideration for their implications.
