In this frank account of events, Sir Richard Packer, former Permanent Secretary at MAFF, details the facts of the BSE outbreak, how government responded to the crisis and how the press contributed to widespread public panic. He reveals how the decisions taken to protect public health were a combination of informed guesswork and sheer good fortune.
