    On the 20th March 1996, Mr Stephen Dorrell, Secretary of State for Health in UK made a statement to the House of Commons that a new variant of Creutzfeldt Jakob disease (nvCJD), a progressive neurological disease in 10 humans, may have been asssociated with exposure to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).

    This lead to reduced beef consumption in UK and Europe, and has had serious detrimental effects upon the beef industry in UK and elsewhere.

    How did this come about and what are the implications for the food industry of Australia ?
