Written answers (Question to Culture)

Two applications dated 28 and 29 March 2019 for licences under Section 42 of the Wildlife Acts, in respect of the persons referred to in the Question, were received in my Department on 4 April last. It is a requirement of the Section 42 application process that applicants must provide a map with the land holdings that are subject of the application showing the areas where serious damage is occurring.  As neither application included such maps, the applicants were requested to provide the necessary documentation.  There is no record of maps having been received in my Department.  On receipt of the outstanding information further consideration will  be given to the applications.
