HC Deb 06 July 1956 vol 555 c141W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that rabbits are now multiplying again at a great rate on property controlled by his Department; and if he will comply with the regulations applying to farmers and take effective measures to destroy these rabbits as quickly as possible.

Mr. Ward

Instructions are being issued to ensure that quick and effective measures continue to be taken to exterminate rabbits whenever and wherever they appear on Admiralty land. There is full collaboration with local agricultural executive committees in any measures taken to exterminate this pest. If my hon. Friend has any particular property in mind perhaps he will let me know.
