unstar this property answer text <p>No. Animal rescue centres are not required to kill healthy animals. Healthy animals taken from the wild may be kept until the end of their natural lives, under licence, provided that they are prevented from breeding or escape. Centres may not, however, re-release those animals; this is to prevent them from further adding to the wild population.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Government takes biosecurity extremely seriously and aims to reduce the impacts of invasive non-native species on our natural environment, the economy and human health. As part of this, the Government works closely with the UK Squirrel Accord and forestry interests to implement the grey squirrel action plan for England and provides funding to the Animal and Plant Health Agency to explore the potential for developing a fertility control method for grey squirrels. We have made a commitment that our exit from the EU will not to erode protections for the environment.</p><p> </p><p>We therefore intend to uphold our commitment to the implementation of the EU Invasive Alien Species Regulation 2014 which requires us to manage the populations of widespread species such as grey squirrel and muntjac deer.</p><p> </p> more like this

This includes the power to introduce a Clean Air Zone under the Transport Act 2000 should they wish to do so.

Local measures, such as those aimed at reducing exposure around schools, are taken by local authorities to whom air quality actions are delegated.</p><p> </p><p>The Government provides guidance, including helpdesk advice, to local authorities to assist them in carrying out their local air quality management responsibilities. Where local authorities conduct air quality monitoring, they are expected to site monitors in accordance with local and national priorities, which may include schools and other locations where there is high risk of public exposure.</p>
