 Definition The governmental department responsible for protection of the environment, food production and standards, agriculture, fisheries and rural matters in the United Kingdom (UK). [d] [e]

Wikipedia has an article of nearly the same name

I have revised it completely, reformatted it, deleted broken reference links and found new active reference links, deleted quite a bit of extraneous material and other changes. Milton Beychok 06:00, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Please abide by the expressed preferences of the UK Department of Environment, Food and Rurual Affairs (Defra)

The Defra website expressly states that the department should be referred to as Defra and not as DEFRA.

Their website page devoted to their logo states that the logo must not be displayed with a frame or box around it and that the logo display have at least a 15 pixel wide blank section around it. That means the article's text must not approach closer than 15 pixels from the logo. Milton Beychok 06:14, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Recent revisions as of December 9, 2010

Since this article was first uploaded into the namespace in August 2009, the Defra website was completely changed and relocated. That mean almost all of the references were no longer any good and had to be replaced by essentially new references. Other changes by the UK government also required the article to be revised to some extent.

The net result is that the article has been pretty well completely re-written and re-formatted. Milton Beychok 07:27, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
