star this property answer text <p>Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 (the 2006 Act), it is an offence to fail to provide for an animal’s welfare or to cause it any unnecessary suffering. The 2006 Act is backed up by the statutory Code of Practice for the Welfare of Horses, Ponies, Donkeys and Their Hybrids (the Code). The Code provides owners and keepers with information on how to meet the welfare needs of their horses and includes a specific section on how to tether a horse. Local authorities have powers under the 2006 Act to investigate allegations of cruelty or poor welfare. In addition, welfare organisations such as the RSPCA and World Horse Welfare (WHW) may also investigate such matters. If anyone is concerned about the way a horse has been tethered, they should report the matter either to the relevant local authority, or to the RSPCA or WHW who can investigate. If a horse is found not to be tethered appropriately, this could lead to a prosecution under the Animal Welfare Act 2006. I consider that existing legislation and guidance in place in respect of tethering horses ensures their welfare needs are met appropriately.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>As part of the Government’s ambitious 25 Year Environment Plan (YEP), we are providing £5.7 million to support the existing Northern Forest Partnership, with Community Forests and The Woodland Trust to accelerate and further develop the Northern Forest. This will help plant at least 1.8 million new trees in the Northern Forest by 2022. A minimum of 1 million of these trees are being delivered through the Partnership Innovation Fund element of our investment. Through this approach we are working closely with the Northern Forest Partnership to consider, develop and test innovative approaches and policies from the 25 YEP such as Forestry Investment Zones, natural capital, carbon off-setting and green investment financing models.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also working with the Northern Forest Partnership to increase planting rates, through joint working of Defra Group bodies like the Forestry Commission (FC), with the Partnership signposting land managers to existing FC funding.</p><p> </p><p>This approach will ensure trees are planted now and kick-start the development of the Northern Forest, helping the Partnership to realise their longer-term vision of 50 million trees over the next 25 years.</p>
