To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with the UK Government on reported plans to bring forward UK-wide legislative proposals to ban the domestic sale and advertising of tourism experiences overseas that involve unacceptable animal welfare practices.
Answered by: Mairi Gougeon 4 February 2022
The Scottish Government is aware of the UK-wide legislative proposals and officials across the UK have held constructive discussions on a number of measures related to the welfare and conservation of animals overseas. We are carefully considering our position on each of these measures.
