star this property answer text <p>We are expecting to introduce a new fees and charges structure for Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) permitting in 2020. This new structure seeks to standardise and simplify the existing charging criteria, and bring CITES Musical Instrument Certificates (MICs) in-line with other permit costs. This will be based on a cost recovery model and supported by a full public consultation and impact assessment. The consultation will consider the timing of implementation as well as the fee structure.</p> more like this

Defra convened a sub-group which included the National Pig Association, the Pig Veterinary Society, AHDB Pork and the RSPCA to develop and refine the draft code further, and also engaged further with Compassion in Word Farming (CIWF). The Farm Animal Welfare Committee (FAWC) approved the final version of the draft code.

star this property answer text <p>The Department plans to increase the number of trees in England through a range of woodland creation options including agroforestry. We know that it is important to have a wide portfolio of tree afforestation methods when planting trees in productive land management systems as every farm situation is different. This allows greater flexibility and ultimately optimal use of agricultural land in England. Furthermore, it will help us meet the shared (public/private sector) aspiration of reaching 12% woodland cover in England by 2060.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Domestically, the Government is on course to plant 11 million trees this Parliament (2017-2022), with at least 3.6 million trees (2,318 hectares) of woodland planted since April 2017, and over 15 million trees planted since 2010. In the Autumn Budget 2018, the Government announced an additional £60 million for tree planting initiatives, comprising £10 million to fund urban tree planting through the Urban Tree Challenge Fund, and £50 million for a Woodland Carbon Guarantee scheme. This will add to other new planting in the pipeline, including the High Speed 2 Woodland Fund, the Woodland Carbon Fund, a kick start investment in the Northern Forest and support for a new Northumberland Forestry Partnership, to delivera new forest region starting with 1 million trees planted by 2024.</p><p> </p><p>The Prime Minister recently announced a doubling of UK International Climate Finance (ICF) to at least £11.6 billion over the next five years. This spend will include a focus on nature based solutions to climate change. Through ICF, the UK currently funds several programmes in developing countries that use native tree-planting as a strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and generating economic benefits for rural communities. For example, Defra’s investments aim to restore 550,000 hectares of forest, generating 90 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions savings. This includes a £10 million project to restore up to 20,000 hectares of mangrove forest in Madagascar and Indonesia.</p>
