For readers new to the subject a paragraph from the BBC website is added:
Sheep dip poisoning – leading organophosphate poisoning campaigners have welcomed recent calls for a “hillsborough style” inquiry into whether farmers were misled over the use of the dangerous chemical. There’s cross party support from MPs for a parliamentary debate for full disclosure of the facts. Twice yearly sheep dipping was compulsory back in the 1970s, eighties and nineties to prevent sheep scab but finally stopped being mandatory in 1992. But farmers across the UK were left with debilitating health problems that they put down to sheep dipping.
