§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now announce the result of his discussions with the National Trust and the Natural Environment Research Council in relation to the culling of seals on the Farne Islands.
§ Mr. Hoy
I regret that as yet the Trust have been unable to agree to the resumption of culling on the Farne Islands. We shall continue to keep the position under close review.
