HC Deb 20 May 1985 vol 79 c302W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many licences he issued in (a) 1983 and (b) 1984 and so far in 1985 to kill birds under section 16 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981; and if he will indicate in each case the species of bird involved, the number allowed to be killed, the location and the reason.

None. The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 does not apply to Northern Ireland.
