To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to review the operation of the Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949. 
§ Mr. Morley
The results of the 1993 National Rodent Survey did not provide evidence to suggest that a change in rodent control policies was needed. A further survey has been carried out, the results of which will be available later this year, and the situation will be reviewed in the light of the results of this survey.
