HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c420W
Mr. George Craddock

asked the Minister o Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, before further culling of grey seals on Farne Islands takes place, he will have a further examination made covering all interests, in view of public anxiety on this score.

Mr. Soames

I am satisfied that the Consultative Committee on Grey Seals and Fisheries, on whose advice I have decided to authorise a further limited cull of grey seals on the Farne Islands this year, have given full consideration to all the interests involved.
