To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the introduction of scaring teams on Islay to prevent damage to crops by Greenland white-fronted geese has been successful; and if he will make a statement.
They have had limited success. White-fronted geese are difficult to scare and frequently return to the site.
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many Greenland white-fronted geese have been killed under licences issued by his Department.
In the period to 4 March 1988 22 white-fronted geese have been killed under licence.
