§ 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.
