HC Deb 19 December 1991 vol 201 c308W
Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make it his policy to ensure that local badger groups and wildlife protection groups are notified in advance of any section 43 licences it may be proposed to issue within their area; if he will allow a period for representations to be made prior to such licences taking effect; and if he has yet finalised details of his licensing scheme.

Mr. Maclean

In considering an application for a licence to permit interference with a badger sett the licensing authorities will consult local interests as they consider appropriate.
