Wildlife Crime

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

I wish to present a petition to the House calling on Parliament and Government to reduce wildlife crime. The petition is organised by my constituent, the brave and indefatigable Faye Burton, who is also organiser of the rural policing liaison group. It has 1,274 signatures.

The petition states:

Your Petitioners pray that your honourable House will urge the Government to ensure that:

Judicial sentences reflect the serious nature of all wildlife crime…

All wildlife crime is entered into a nationwide database that enables the sharing of information

All police forces appoint a full-time wildlife officer to police wildlife crime

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
