HC Deb 19 May 1976 vol 911 c521W
55. Sir John Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, if he will take steps to prohibit the importation into Scotland of apis mellifera adonsonii.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

I have no knowledge of any proposals to import bees of this species into Scotland, and I am advised that it is unlikely that they would survive long in Scottish conditions.
