Urban Gulls

EDM number 1086 in 2010-12, proposed by Don Foster on 24/11/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Animal welfare.

That this House notes that urban gulls have significant populations in at least150 constituencies; further notes that urban gulls cause disruption by creating noise and mess, damaging roof structures and cars and behaving aggressively; is concerned that despite numerous efforts and considerable cost to councils, businesses and members of the public, urban gulls remain an issue in many areas; is further concerned that as the number of these birds continues to increase, their impact will increase in direct proportion; recognises the view of bodies such as the RSPCA and the RSPB, who believe that more research is necessary if a reliable solution to this issue is to be found; acknowledges the need for as humane a solution as possible; and calls on the Government to support research into the numbers, lifecycle and behaviour of urban gulls so that more effective management methods can be devised.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
