HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 c176W
115. Mr. Wainwright

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will state the amount of public money that has been spent over the years 1960, 1961 and 1962, to eradicate American tingle in the oyster beds of this country.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

There has been no direct expenditure on eradication, but through the research work of the Ministry's Fisheries Laboratory, we have been able to tender helpful advice to oyster men on lessening damage to beds.
