asked the Minister of Agriculture if, in order to reduce the wood pigeon pest, he will consider making a payment in respect of each pair of wild pigeon's feet delivered to his Department, as is being done already in the case of squirrels' tails.

This suggestion has practical disadvantages. It has been considered by my Land Pests Advisory Committee and their advice, which I am accepting, is that the present scheme under which half price cartridges are made available for the shooting of wood pigeons is working satisfactorily and is to be preferred.
