To ask the Scottish Government what enforcement action has been taken by (a) Scottish Natural Heritage and (b) other bodies in the last 12 months regarding the (i) existence and (ii) spread of giant hogweed.

Answered by Aileen McLeod (14/09/2015):

Scottish Natural Heritage has intervened to support coordinated action to control giant hogweed on three occasions in the last 12 months. All of these instances have been dealt with on a voluntary basis, with a Species Control Agreement being put in place in one case. The Scottish Environment Protection Agency has not been involved in this way with any giant hogweed control. The Scottish Government does not hold information about interventions by local authorities.
