Appendix 2 - Progress Against RACCE Recommendations
The information and data in this fourth wildlife crime annual report has continued to be improved in accordance with the recommendations made by the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee ( RACCE).
The then Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Dr Aileen McLeod, responded to the RACCE Committee in her letter of 25 February 2016, with responses to additional questions raised in their letter of 3 February 2016, and these have largely been taken forward.
However, due to resource pressures the following recommendations have not yet been taken forward by Scottish Government officials:
- Presenting data on a quarterly basis.
- A breakdown on resource COPFS apply to wildlife crime.
- The impact of land reform legislation on wildlife crime.
These areas will be considered for the fifth annual report.
