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

The National Farmers’ Union and a range of key stakeholders engaged in the consultation process. 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. The code applies to England only as animal welfare is a devolved matter.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to work very closely with the pig sector and will ensure owners and keepers of farmed pigs, are fully aware of the updated statutory code when it comes into force.</p> more like this

The work we are doing to increase market access for pork to China is a great success, and has boosted the value of UK pork exports there from £19.6 million in 2014 to £43.6 million in 2018. China's domestic market consumes 55 million metric tonnes of pork per year and there is real potential for UK industry to continue to increase exports of pork products such as pig trotters and heads. We will also continue to build on our strong international reputation for food standards and premium exports, which help drive the demand for UK produce in China.</p><p> </p> more like this

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>

Our target is to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste throughout the life of the 25 Year Environment Plan, but for the most problematic plastics we are going faster - that is why we commit to work towards all plastic packaging placed on the UK market being recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.</p><p>We have made good progress. Our plastic bag charge has led to a 90% reduction in the use of plastic carrier bags in the main retailers, and we recently consulted on plans to extend the charge to all retailers and on increasing the minimum charge to at least 10p. We want to further incentivise people to choose sustainable alternatives to single-use plastics. We are therefore seeking a power in the Environment Bill to be able to place a charge on any single-use plastic item.</p><p>In addition, the Government will introduce a ban, with exemptions, on the supply of single use plastic drinking straws, plastic drink stirrers and plastic-stemmed cotton buds to the end user in England in April 2020. As set out in the Resources and Waste Strategy, we will take a strategic approach to the use of bans as part of a broader approach to reduce the use of single-use plastics.</p>
