§ 20. Sir A. Gomme-Duncan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he proposes to take on the agreed proposals on deer in Scotland submitted to him by the interested parties.
§ Lord John Hope
The joint report is being considered. It has been discussed with the Nature Conservancy, which has furnished some additional information designed to facilitate a proper appreciation of the proposals. At this stage, my right hon. Friend cannot say whether or when the Government may be able to introduce legislation on the subject.
§ Sir A. Gomme-Duncan
Whilst thanking my noble Friend for that Answer, may I ask if he would speed up in every way he can, particularly in view of the season?
