HC Deb 26 July 1979 vol 971 c433W
Mr. Fry

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether there has been a review of grants for fox destruction; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Wiggin

Yes. My right hon. Friends the Minister and the Secretary of State for Wales have discussed this and concluded that there are no longer grounds for these payments. They are therefore being discontinued from the end of August, and the fox destruction societies are being so informed.
