HC Deb 23 October 2000 vol 355 c100W
Mr. Yeo

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list the research projects being(a) carried out and (b) sponsored by his Department into rabbit haemorrhagic disease, and stating the nature of each project. [128309]

Mr. Nick Brown

[pursuant to his reply, 12 July 2000, c. 587W]: A further search has revealed that MAFF is currently a contributor to one project on viral haemorrhagic disease of rabbits: The impact of rabbit viral haemorrhagic disease on wild rabbit populations.

The project is jointly sponsored with the University of Stirling, the Institute for Virology and Environmental Microbiology, The British Association for Shooting and Conservation Ltd., The Game Conservancy Trust, The National Trust, English Nature and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

I regret that this information was inadvertently omitted from my earlier reply.
