Motion text

That this House notes that urban gulls have significant populations in at least150 constituencies; further notes that urban gulls cause disruption by creating noise and mess, damaging roof structures and cars and behaving aggressively; is concerned that despite numerous efforts and considerable cost to councils, businesses and members of the public, urban gulls remain an issue in many areas; is further concerned that as the number of these birds continues to increase, their impact will increase in direct proportion; recognises the view of bodies such as the RSPCA and the RSPB, who believe that more research is necessary if a reliable solution to this issue is to be found; acknowledges the need for as humane a solution as possible; and calls on the Government to support research into the numbers, lifecycle and behaviour of urban gulls so that more effective management methods can be devised.
