§ 42. Mr. J. Morrison
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the decrease in the number of green plover, he will introduce a Measure to protect these birds in the United Kingdom until they have had a chance of increasing.
§ Mr. Morrison
Is the Home Secretary aware that if these birds are protected in one area but not in an adjoining area, they will find their way into the market?
§ Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
Can the Home Secretary say in what districts this year these birds have not been and are not being protected?
§ Mr. Nicholson
Will the circular be followed up by the right hon. Gentleman's Department? He must realise that so long as people in one county can shoot these birds and put them on the market, there is no point in extending protection to them in other counties, and the whole scheme will be vitiated.
