§ 40. Miss Quennell
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how far he now estimates the wild mink population has spread; and what means of controlling these predators he recommends.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
Although wild mink have been reported in 41 counties of England and Wales they are not numerous anywhere. The majority appear to be in Southern England, the Pennines and West Wales. Recommended control is by humane trapping.
