§ Mr. BARR
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether the Commissioners give instructions to their surveyors that the humane rabbit-snares of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals must be used on their lands, or whether the use of these snares is optional; and whether, in that case, he can state the areas under the Commissioners in which these humane rabbit-snares are in use?
§ Mr. W. R. SMITH
The Forestry Commissioners have not given instructions for the use of any particular kind of rabbit-snare on their lands. Information is not immediately available as to 1511W the areas where the humane snares are in use, but the question of using them on all the Commission's areas will be considered.
