asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the growing rat pest, he will investigate the possibility of encouraging the raising of a strain of cats specially suited for dealing with rats on the lines of a similar strain formerly cultivated at Le Havre in France for use in connection with ships?
No, Sir. The most efficient methods of dealing with rats are poisoning, gassing and trapping.
Has the Minister tried pasteurised milk?
Will the Minister consider feeding rats on unpasteurised milk in order to reduce their number?
Will the Minister consider employing some of the cats in this House?
