HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 c3W
Mr. Geraint Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether, in view of the reduction in the numbers of rabbit clearance societies and of field operators in Wales since the withdrawal of Government grant aid for their work and bearing in mind the slight increase in rabbit infestation during the last 12 months' period, he will give consideration to the reintroduction of a grant-aided scheme for rabbit clearance in Wales.

Mr. Peter Thomas

No. As will be apparent from my reply to the hon. and learned Members for Montogomery (Mr. Hooson) on 16th December, 1971, a a scheme of this kind would be contrary to the Government's policy for rabbit control.—[Vol. 828, c. 184.]
