§ Mr. Bossom
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is now able to make a statement about arrangements for the supply of cartridges used for shooting wood pigeons when the general cartridge rebate ends on 31st March, 1960.
§ Mr. Godber
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I propose to extend the grant to rabbit clearance societies to cover half the cost of cartridges used for shooting wood-pigeons and certain other harmful birds by their own employees and by expert shots, including approved shooting organisations, engaged by them to shoot over members' land when the general cartridge rebate ends on 31st March.
