HC Deb 11 May 1950 vol 475 c78W
52. Mr. Amory

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether there is yet available a satisfactory humane rabbit trap; and, if so, what steps are being taken to encourage its use.

Mr. T. Williams

So far as I am aware the Sawyer trap is the only trap designed on humane principles which is available in any quantity. The results of trials recently carried out with it by officers of my Department were not very satisfactory, and further trials with the trap and with a re-designed version of it are to be undertaken next month.
