HL Deb 08 September 2003 vol 652 c91WA
Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Whitty on 10 March (WA 152) in which he stated that research shows "increasing pesticide use may indirectly contribute to the decline of 20 species of song birds", whether they have plans to gather statistics on the sales of slug pellets. [HL4144]

Lord Whitty

Defra does not collect statistics on the sale of pesticides and has no plans to collate information on slug pellet sales.
