HC Deb 07 July 1965 vol 715 cc218-9W
50. Mr. Kimball

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the numbers of permits for strychnine issued in England, and Wales in the last full year and the total number of ounces of strychnine used; and if he will review the issue of permits for strychnine.

Mr. Hoy

13,731 permits authorising the purchase of 2,551 ounces of strychnine for use in controlling moles were issued in England and Wales in 1964. I see no need to review the issue of permits, which is strictly supervised.
