The GB Non-Native Species Secretariat (who knew?) is conducting a public consultation on its new invasive non-native species framework strategy. There are two long documents to read on their website which can be found by clicking here, as well as details of how to respond.

Potentially, any new legislation resulting from this consultation could have an impact on importers of plant material to the UK, including breeders and licensees of new plant varieties. We recommend that you take the time to read and respond to the documents.
