HC Deb 25 April 1972 vol 835 cc241-2W
Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress has been made in finding an alternative to the use of strychnine for the control of moles.

Mr. Peter Mills

Research is continuing in an effort to devise some equally efficient and more acceptable form of control; but as yet no satisfactory alter- native technique or substance has been found.
