HC Deb 12 April 1984 vol 58 c344W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what information he has of the number of foxes killed for their skins at Cocksparrow farm, Lee Marston, Warwickshire in 1983; how the foxes were killed; and what method of disposal was used for the carcasses.

Mrs. Fenner

I have no information on the number of foxes killed in 1983. I understand that the animals are killed humanely by lethal injections, and that purchasers take the entire carcase. The farm is regularly visited by the state veterinary service.
