Original motion text

That this House is concerned that wildlife crime is not being given sufficient priority, as was revealed in the recent Naturewatch survey of police wildlife crime officers; notes that police believe that there are strong connections between some types of wildlife crime, such as badger baiting and poaching, and other forms of crime; further notes that wildlife crime is perceived to be high yield, low risk; and urges the Government to increase the priority given to tackling wildlife crime forthwith.
