The Welsh Assembly Government is going ahead with new plans for a badger cull, as part of its bovine TB policy. Last year the cull had to be shelved following a legal challenge. Charlotte Smith asks the Defra Secretary Caroline Spelman if the announcement puts more pressure on her to make an announcement about plans for a badger cull in England. Ms Spelman also tells Charlotte about a new £20 million fund for community broadband in remote upland areas, which she believes will help keep farms competitive and villages vibrant.
