asked the Minister of Agriculture if his attention has been called to the increasing destruction of poultry in Norfolk caused by foxes; and what special measures are being taken by his Department to deal with this problem.

I have seen a Press report suggesting increasing destruction of poultry by foxes in Norfolk, but I am informed by the county agricultural executive committee that all cases reported to them have been dealt with satisfactorily. If farmers are in difficulty over foxes they should get into touch with the county pests officer.
