HC Deb 18 May 1893 vol 12 c1263

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the ravages of foxes amongst the lambs in the Lochearron district of Ross-shire, and the inability or unwillingness of the Landlords' and Sporting Tenants' Association to capture or destroy these vermin; and whether steps will be taken to deal energetically with this grievance?


My attention has not been called to these special ravages. If there is a serious grievance from the neglect to kill foxes in deer forests, there are bodies representing public opinion in the Highlands officially and non-officially from whom I should expect to receive resolutions.
