HC Deb 05 July 1956 vol 555 c135W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is aware that rabbits are now multiplying again at a great rate in woodlands and scrub on property controlled by his Department; and if he will ensure that his Department comply with the regulations applying to farmers and take effective measures to destroy these rabbits before they seriously increase further.

Mr. Watkinson

Measures are taken, where necessary, to keep down rabbits on trunk road land and on aerodromes controlled by my Department, and I am not aware that they are ineffective; but if my hon. Friend knows of any particular site under my control where rabbits are multiplying again I should be glad to investigate it.
