§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the latest position relative to his departmental study on straying animals; and when he expects to have completed this study.
§ Mr. John Morris
Of the 13 working parties set up as a result of departmental initiative, two have reached conclusions which have been accepted and are being implemented, and one has satisfied itself that no further immediate action is required. The remainder are generally nearing the end of their studies and some urgent fencing work has already been undertaken. All working parties expect to complete their plans during the next six months.
