HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 c20W
Lieut.-Commander Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is yet in a position to introduce legislation for the protection of Scottish rare birds.

Mr. J. Stuart

Proposals for strengthening and clarifying the existing law on the protection of wild birds have been submitted by the English and Scottish Wild Birds Advisory Committees. These proposals are being very carefully examined by my right hon. Friends but I regret that they cannot at present give any undertaking about new legislation on this subject.
