asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that there is a grave shortage of Cymag this year for the destruction of rabbits; and what steps does he propose to take to ensure an adequate increase.

I am aware of the shortage of Cymag and would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Members for Tonbridge (Mr. G. Williams) and Newbury (Mr. Hurd) on 15th June.
