HC Deb 13 July 1956 vol 556 c53W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware that the advice recently given by the Kent County Pest staff regarding the destruction of rabbits does not include information with respect to the most critical months for the propagation of rabbits; and if he will take steps to convey such information to farmers in Kent and elsewhere.

Mr. Amory

The peak of the breeding season is of course in the spring, but breeding continues throughout the summer. But I am anxious that a ceaseless campaign should be conducted against surviving rabbits whenever they appear regardless of the season.
