§ Sir A. Bossom
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware that rabbits are reappearing in almost every part of Kent; and what steps he is taking to deal with the situation.
Yes. My county executive committee has sent a note to all occupiers of land in the county strongly urging them to take action before it is too late, and reminding them that the Pests Act, 1954, places a continuing obligation on them to deal with wild rabbits on their land. The county pests staff, with the help of district committees, are systematically surveying the county and advising occupiers on the measures to be taken.
