All wild birds are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and there are strong penalties in place for offences committed against birds of prey and other wildlife, with most wildlife crimes carrying up to an unlimited fine and/or a six-month custodial sentence.
I share concern about the protection and health of British Waters, and I am fully aware of the impact that super trawlers have on marine life. Our waters are a precious natural resource and they must be managed carefully.
As we deliver on our election pledge to get Britain out the EU we have a massive opportunity to unlock Britain's real potential and make relationships with economies the world over. I want to see a Britain that is outward looking, prepared to make the most of all we have to offer.
