§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has had any representations regarding erection of electric deer fences by the Forestry Commission; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr.John MacKay
No representations have been made to my right hon. Friend about the erection of electric deer fences by the Forestry Commission. The commission is conducting trials on the effectiveness of electric deer fencing but it is far too early to draw any conclusions.
