These cover the costs for the slaughter and destruction of animals and for the destruction of milk and contaminated feedingstuffs and the costs for cleaning and desinfection of holdings.

The indicative EU contribution (60% of total eligible costs) is € 31.9 million for the Netherlands, € 1.3 million for France and € 1.3 million for Ireland.

These are provisional figures, based on forecasts provided by the Member States, pending the results of controls on the ground.

In August 2001, the Commission already adopted advance payments for the compensation of farmers for the compulsory slaughter of their animals (value of the animals).

Advances of € 355 million were allocated to the United Kingdom, € 39 million to the Netherlands, € 3.3 million to France and € 2.7 to Ireland. No final decisions on the financial contributions for this part of the costs have been taken as financial controls are not yet completed.
