§ Mr. Coaker
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when he plans to implement European Regulation 3254/91 on leghold traps. 
§ Angela Eagle
The Environment Council meeting on 19–20 June took no decision on the Commission's proposals for a "Framework Agreement on humane trapping standards", which are not supported by the UK or a number of other Member States. The Commission and the Council will now have to decide whether to pursue the proposals for an agreement which we regard as unsatisfactory, or consider other options, including the implementation of the original EU import ban under Regulation 3254/91 on the import of furs taken in leghold traps.
