That this House congratulates the organisers of the recent second International Festival of Falconry, held in Englefield, Berkshire, which brought together over 50 countries to celebrate the age-old practice of using birds of prey for hunting; recognises that in many parts of the world such activities are regarded as part of a country's heritage; urges the Government to recognise the cultural and traditional importance of falconry and other natural forms of hunting; and suggests that the UK should sign UNESCO's Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
