The Government is carefully considering the case for an invasive non-native species (INNS) inspectorate and the functions that it might carry out.

The Government will look to determine if a separate inspectorate is required based on an assessment of costs, benefits and practicalities. The Government will also assess whether existing inspectorates might be extended in scope to carry out INNS related functions.
