That this House notes the strong cross-party support for EDM 50, 2019-20 welcoming the public consultation on the controls on the import and export of hunting trophies; further notes that the consultation on banning trophy hunting imports ended in February 2020; supports the view of the coalition of animal charities and organisations; including Animal Defenders International, Born Free Foundation, Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, Four Paws, Humane Society International, International Wildlife Bond, OneKind, Protecting African Lions, RSPCA, Voice4Lions, World Animal Protection, Zimbabwe Elephant Foundation, Lion Aid on the need to implement a comprehensive ban; notes that every measure of public opinion taken shows that British citizens overwhelmingly want a complete ban on all trophy hunting imports; and calls on the Government to make an announcement without further delay and uphold the previously stated desire to see an end to the importation of all animal parts derived from trophy hunting into the UK.
