§ Mr. Maclean
Negotiations on the proposed new EC regulation on the wildlife trade are continuing. The lists of species to be included on the annexes have yet to be766W considered in detail. We hold that the principal controls should be extended to non-CITES species where there are sound scientific reasons, and support a simple system of wider monitoring. The system adopted, including the requirements for proof, must be enforceable and kept as simple as possible.
