With this it will be convenient to discuss the following:

Amendment 107, in clause 3, page 2, line 21, at end insert—

“(g) their social grouping.”

This amendment would add the social grouping of primates to standards that can be included under licensing conditions.

Amendment 108, in clause 3, page 2, line 21, at end insert—

“(g) microchipping of any primate kept under the licence.”

Amendment 109, in clause 3, page 2, line 22, leave out “may” and insert “must”.

This amendment would require microchipping of licensed primates, and require licence holders to provide specific information to local authorities.
