2017-19 Session
That this House recognises the negative effect of the continued importation, sale and distribution of animal carcasses and body parts such as the head, hide or horns obtained through trophy hunting on the conservation efforts of endangered wildlife; highlights that the importation of trophies contributes to the decline of animal populations specifically that of Bovidae, Rhinoceroses and various species of big cat; notes that the link between the trade of trophies and illegal activities such as forgery of fraudulent licenses, money laundering and corruption as made clear in the European Parliament Committee on International Trade, EU trade policy and the wildlife trade 2016; and calls on the Government to make it a criminal offence to trade in trophy hunting memorabilia.
