Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to introduce legislation for compulsory proofing of premises against birds; and if he will make a statement. [94454]

Local authorities already have powers to deal with bird nuisance through a variety of measures including the Public Health Act 1961, the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The Government have no plans to introduce further legislation.
