§ 41. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is in possession of any statistics which will enable an estimate to be made of the destruction of poultry by foxes?
§ Colonel LOCKWOOD
Can the hon. Gentleman possibly arrive at any estimate of the damage to food done by rats, mice, and wood pigeons, as well as by foxes?
No; but I have not the slightest doubt that the damage done by such pests is infinitely greater than what is done by foxes.
