Anti ‘Hunting Trophy’ Bill Passes Committee Stage
Greg has attended the House of Commons Public Bill Committee for the Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill which is currently before Parliament.
With support from Greg, the Bill passed its committee stage, and continues its progress. The proposed legislation will ban British hunters from bringing body part ‘trophies’ of endangered and vulnerable animals into Great Britain.
Commenting after the committee had concluded, Sir Greg said: “There was widespread parliamentary support for this Bill to ban trophy hunting imports. It is important that we stand up for global conservation and tackle those activities which put this at risk.”
The Bill will now return to the House of Commons for approval and this is expected to be on 17thMarch 2023.
