Infrastructure Bill [Lords] – in the House of Commons at 7:30 pm on 26 January 2015.

Alert me about debates like this

Amendment made: 46, page 23, line 11, at end insert—

“Beaver, Eurasian (but not in relation to Wales) Castor fiber”

(Stephen Williams.)

This amendment aims to secure that, in England, the species control provisions will not apply to Eurasian beavers which are released into the wild under licence. It will continue to be the case that Eurasian beavers may only be released into the wild under licence.
