EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order varies the Spring Traps Approval (England) Order 2018 (S.I. 2018/1190).

Under section 8 of the Pests Act 1954 (c. 68), it is an offence to use or knowingly permit the use of any spring trap, other than a trap that has been approved by order, for animals or in circumstances for which it is not approved.

This Order adds a type of spring trap to those approved for use in England, namely, the Perdix Spring Trap (article 2(c)).

It also adds to the target species for which three of the traps previously approved may be used:

  • the Doc 250 may now also be used for ferrets (article 2(a));

  • the Goodnature A24 Rat and Stoat Trap may now also be used for edible dormice (Glis glis) (article 2(b)); and

  • the Tully Trap may now also be used for grey squirrels, where it is fitted with baffles for grey squirrels, in accordance with the conditions specified (article 2(d)).

An impact assessment had not been produced for this instrument as no, or no significant, impact on the private, voluntary or public sectors is foreseen.
