HC Deb 15 May 1941 vol 371 c1273W
Mr. Leslie

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has any information as to the number of lambs destroyed recently by foxes; and what steps have been taken by the hunts to deal with this matter?

Mr. Hudson

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative. In reply to the second part of the Question, the Masters of Foxhounds Association has impressed on its members the importance of drastic measures being continued to reduce the number of foxes, and that the killing of foxes must be the sole object of any hunting.
