HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 cc177-8W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the apparatus for killing whales by electricity to which he referred in his statement of 19th July, 1948, has now been given sufficient trial to permit him to decide whether or not steps should be taken to render its use obligatory.

Mr. T. Williams

No; I am awaiting the return of the British whaling fleet for a report on further trials carried out this season.
