Peter Jinman becomes FAWC's new chairman
4 February 2013
We were delighted to hear that Peter Jinman, one of our Council members and an RCVS past-President, has been appointed the new Chairman of the Farm Animal Welfare Committee (FAWC).
The FAWC is an expert committee of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Devolved Administrations in Scotland and Wales.
Established in 2011, it provides advice to Defra and the Devolved Administrations in Scotland and Wales on the welfare of farmed animals.
Peter has spent most of his working life in practice in Herefordshire, and is also a past-President of the British Veterinary Association.
He replaces Professor Christopher Wathes, who retired as FAWC Chairman at the end of 2012.
