These Regulations amend the Mink (Keeping) Regulations 1975 (as amended) in respect of the fees prescribed in respect of licences to keep mink, with effect from 1st January 1998. In the case of a special licence to keep mink for exhibition or for purposes of scientific research or other exceptional purposes, granted under section 8 of the Destructive Imported Animals Act 1932 (“the Act”), they prescribe a fee of £185 in England and Wales, and £60 in Scotland. In the case of a licence granted under section 3 of the Act (all other cases in which a licence is granted), they prescribe a fee of £630.
Prior to the entry into force of these Regulations, the Mink (Keeping) Regulations 1975 were last amended by the Mink (Keeping) (Amendment) Regulations 1987 (S.I. 1987/2225), which prescribed a fee of £115 in respect of a licence granted under section 3 of the Act. No fee has previously been prescribed in respect of the granting of a licence under section 8 of the Act.
A regulatory appraisal has been prepared and has been deposited in the library of each House of Parliament.
