S5W-01127: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 29 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what procedures are in place for de-registering a snaring identification number, including when the person who was granted the number (a) ceases employment in snaring, (b) retires or (c) dies.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 20 July 2016

There is no requirement at present for a snaring operator to de-register their snaring identification number when the person who is granted the number a) ceases employment in snaring, b) retires, or c) dies.

The snaring review, due to be completed by the end of 2016, will review the changes made through the Wildlife and Environment Act 2011 and the Snares (Scotland) Order 2010, including the snaring operator registration process.
