HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 cc26-7W
Brigadier Peto

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the damage done to gardens and allotments by birds and rabbits, he will permit the purchase of wire netting by private individuals owning half an acre or more, with out licence.

Mr. T. Williams

I regret that wire netting supplies are not sufficient to allow any further relaxation of control at present if essential agricultural needs are to be met. It is, however, already permissible for any person to acquire without licence new wire netting of an amount not exceeding 100 lineal yards per month, or any quantity of used wire netting.
