Last month we announced that we will be consulting on whether to further restrict the import and export of hunting trophies.

The consultation will cover a range of options. This is an important next step to determine how best to respond to conservation, welfare and ethical concerns. Following the consultation we will publish a Government response setting out any future policy actions required to move ahead on this important issue. The exact scope and timing of any further action will be subject to results of the consultation.
