star this property answer text <p>If we leave the EU without a deal, all Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) items that are currently freely traded between the UK and the EU, including musical instruments, will require CITES permits or an import notification. This would mean movement of CITES specimens between the UK and the EU would need to follow the same processes as those currently in place for movement between the UK and the rest of the world. We are working hard to make sure we maintain continuity and minimise disruption for those who trade and move CITES listed species, and have been working closely with the music industry on this issue.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to import/export permits, there are other options which may be more appropriate for musicians looking to move musical instruments. Travelling Exhibition Certificates can be issued to cover instruments that are owned by orchestras (rather than individuals). We have also been increasing awareness of CITES Musical Instrument Certificates. These can be used for non-commercial purposes, including performing, to allow musicians to travel with their own instruments across the UK border in place of CITES import/export permits. These are valid for multiple movements for three years and can be used by individual musicians travelling alone or with an ensemble. They also allow travel outside the EU. In September, we announced the addition of Dover, Eurotunnel, and Holyhead to the list of ports to be designated for CITES movement after exit.</p><p> </p><p>At the recent CITES Conference of the Parties, a decision was made to change annotation number 15 which relates to rosewood species, such as <em>Dalbergia</em>. This will exempt musical instruments made of this wood (including finished musical instrument parts and accessories) and small finished items up to 10kg. This exemption allows a person to travel to any country in the world with a musical instrument or finished product containing less than 10kg of a rosewood or a Bubinga without a CITES permit. The EU Commission are preparing legislation to implement this amendment to the CITES Appendices by amending the Annexes of the EU Wildlife Trade Regulations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Natural England (NE), like all other Defra sponsored bodies, receives a budget to carry out its duties and responsibilities in line with what is affordable and the Government’s priorities for the natural environment. Grant in Aid has reduced over recent years, however NE receives income from other sources to carry out its duties. The resulting reduction aligns with the Defra Group average of 23% across the same period.</p><p> </p><p>NE’s primary power to charge for services and licences is in section 11 of the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 (‘the Act’). Under section 11(1) of the Act, NE can charge for its services and, for example, uses this power to underpin its chargeable Discretionary Advice Service, through which it is able to offer advice to developers and others in response to non-statutory requests (e.g. pre-application advice). To exercise its powers under section 11(3) of the Act to charge for its service in issuing licences, enabling legislation would need to be in place. Defra is working closely with NE to consider how to broaden its income base.</p><p> </p><p>The recent one-year Spending Round for the financial year 2020 to 2021 saw some additional funds allocated for biodiversity. Defra will work with NE to determine future funding necessary from 2020 to deliver NE’s contribution to Government’s ambitions for the environment, including its 25 Year Plan for the Environment.</p>
