That this House notes with concern the number of British songbirds being killed illegally in Cyprus after migrating for the winter months; further notes the alarming news that up to 800,000 birds, which amounts to almost half the breeding population of thrushes in Britain, are believed to have been killed in a single day; recognises that the birds are prized as a delicacy in Cypriot restaurants and that Cypriot laws allow the shooting of songbirds on Wednesdays and Sundays from November to February; objects to the illegal trapping and shooting of songbirds; and calls on the Government to work with the Cypriot authorities and the RSPB to stop the illegal slaughter of British songbirds.
