House of Lords written question – answered on 5th February 2013.
To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps are being taken to eradicate rats on Henderson Island.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) ran a rat eradication programme in 2011. Unfortunately this was unsuccessful in removing all the rats from Henderson Island. We are analysing the detailed independent reports commissioned by the RSPB and working with the Pitcairn community to establish the next steps. We remain committed to working with Pitcairn and partner organisations to protect the environment and biodiversity of these internationally important islands.
