HC Deb 26 January 1956 vol 548 c58W
24. Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make an appeal to the owners of private woodlands to allow access to their woods for the purpose of killing pigeons which are harmful to the crops on adjoining land.

Mr. Amory

I thank my hon. Friend for giving me this opportunity of appealing to owners of private woodlands to give permission for the organised shooting of wood-pigeons on their property. I hope that this appeal will receive wide publicity.
