Government may lift bird import ban

May 2008. Despite Tony Blair‘s promise to ban the import of wild birds permanently, the government has recently revealed that the ban may only be temporary. Wildlife Extra (WE) enquired, via our local MP, Bill Wiggins, as to whether there were any plans to extend the import ban to all wildlife, (especially in the light of the ridiculous revelations about rabid dogs being imported from Sri Lanka). This would be highly beneficial to wildlife around the world, and also to the UK’s balance of payments as several million would be wiped off our import bill.

25% of the world’s newly endangered birds are found on British territory.
