To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if estimates are available in respect of the hare population in Wales (a) as a whole and (b) on a local basis for the past five years; and if he will make a statement. [37708]

The most recent estimate indicates a population of approximately 50,000 brown hares in Wales in the early 1990s. No estimates are available on a more local basis. Further information can be found in "A Review of British Mammals: population estimates and conservation status of British mammals other than cetaceans" published by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee in 1995.
