Details

In June Defra issued 3 interim general licences for those who need to take action to control wild birds.

Defra consulted Natural England, its statutory adviser on the natural environment, on the proposed licences. Natural England sent Defra these 2 pieces of science-based advice. Defra considered this advice alongside a range of other evidence before issuing the 3 interim general licences.
