ORAL QUESTION for Question Time at the part-session in December 2008 pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure by Neena Gill to the Commission

 Subject: Tiger conservation
 Answer 

Given the fact that poaching remains a serious threat to the wild tiger, and recognising the positive steps which India is beginning to take to improve protection for these animals, will the Commission follow this lead and recognise wildlife crime as a form of serious transnational organised crime, and will the Commission provide additional resources to international partners such as UNODC, UNEP, Interpol and WCO for combating environmental and wildlife crime, particularly in the trans-Himalayan region (India, Nepal, China)?
