§ 54. Mr. Donald Scott
asked the Minister of Agriculture what research is being carried out at present in the use of selective weed killers for the eradication of bracken; and when results will be made known to farmers.
Mr. T. Williams
Research has been in progress for several years at the Department of Agriculture at Oxford University, but, so far, it has not brought to light any selective herbicide showing promise for bracken control. The investigations are, however, continuing.
