Inquiry into invasive alien species

The Environment and Sustainability Committee undertook a short inquiry into how the problem of Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) is being addressed in Wales. We agreed the following terms of reference for the inquiry:

      To assess the adequacy of data and information currently available on the extent and impacts of invasive alien species in Wales;

      To assess the action taken to date by the Welsh Government and relevant authorities to tackle this issue; and

      To consider the European Commission’s proposals to bring forward a Directive that would require Member States to take coordinated action to address this issue.

On 9 May 2013, we invited a range of organisations to join us at the National Botanic Gardens to share their perspectives.
