§ Mr. Burden
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consult the Forestry Commission for information and advice regarding the characteristics of the badger, on the desirability of extending protection and on the manner in which control should be exercised if and when it is necessary.
§ Mr. George Thomas
My right hon. Friend proposes to consult the Forestry Commission and other organisations which may be in a position to give expert guidance on these matters.
