asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they intend to review the Scottish legislation relating to deer.
§ Lord Lyell
Yes. We have today sent copies of a consultative paper to interested organisations, inviting their comments by 30th June. Copies have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. When replies are received we shall consider what legislative measures are required. Comments are also invited from interested members of the public. Copies of the consultative paper may be obtained on request from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for Scotland.
House adjourned at nine minutes past eleven o'clock.
