HC Deb 26 July 1977 vol 936 c196W
Mr. Freud

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will make a statement on the recent discovery of Colorado beetle in Sussex.

Mr. Strang

Single Colorado beetles were found last month in two private gardens in Seaford and Peacehaven. It has not been possible to trace their origins. Neighbouring gardens were searched by Ministry staff but no other beetles were found.
