HC Deb 03 February 1965 vol 705 cc284-5W
41. Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps to ensure that the killing of seals on the Farne Islands takes place only when authorised by his Department.

Mr. Peart

The order now in force suspending the close season on the Fame Islands prohibits any unauthorised killing of grey seals, and any future Orders made would contain similar provisions.
