HC Deb 14 July 1965 vol 716 cc62-3W
42. Mr. MacArthur

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in developing a humane alternative to the gin trap.

Mr. Ross

A humane alternative to the gin trap has not yet been found. Trials are, however, being undertaken of five types of trap considered by the Humane Traps Panel to be worthy of investigation. I am unable to say what the outcome of the trials is likely to be.
