The UK Government has pledged to ban hunting trophies – but isn’t able to say when

A new report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Banning Trophy Hunting (APPG) reveals that British imports of hunting trophies from protected species may be going up – and that official figures may be just the tip of the iceberg.

The APPG is calling on the government to name a date for the introduction of its bill, or to instead adopt the Hunting Trophy Import (Prohibition) Bill promoted by backbencher John Spellar MP which has won cross-party support and is scheduled for debate on Friday 14 January.

On Tuesday 11 January, the APPG launches its new report ‘Shooting up – Are Britain’s Trophy Imports & Hunting Companies Booming?’ in a webinar open to the public, and challenges the government to bring a swift end to imports of hunting trophies into Britain.

Panellists include world-famous conservationist Dr Jane Goodall; Lt Gen Serestse Khama, former President of Botswana; Professor Phyllis Lee of the Amboseli Trust; Sir Roger Gale MP (Con); Baroness Sue Hayman (Lab); Dave Doogan MP (SNP); Lord Chris Rennard (Lib Dems); Hywel Williams MP.
