The Covid-19 pandemic has delayed the publication of the Government response to the recent consultation and call for evidence on controls on the import and export of hunting trophies. I have no plans to make an assessment of the impact of this delay on imports and exports of hunting trophies. However, we are continuing to work on this important area and a response will be published as soon as possible.
