§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what charges were brought and what convictions were secured against registered breeders of birds of prey in 1984.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
No central record of the number of offences is available. Details of possible offences or irregularities which come to the Department's attention are referred to the police or other enforcement agencies. At least a dozen cases have, or will, come to court where the Department has provided information.
