The NFU has been working together with Greg Smith MP on the Bill, aimed at giving the Home Secretary new powers to make regulations that deter the theft and resale of Quads and ATVs (All-Terrain Vehicles).
We will respond to the call for evidence with some of the technical detail that NFU advisers researched to help with the drafting of the Bill.
The NFU is particularly interested in more powers to combat the current surge in the theft of removable GPS (Global Positioning Service) systems and will support a requirement for these units to be forensically marked to discourage resale and assist police investigations.
Stakeholders can send their feedback directly to government Equipment Theft (Prevention) Bill: Call for evidence by 13 July 2023.
The NFU is interested to hear feedback from members on the proposals for this Bill. You can submit your views by filling in the form below. Read our explanatory notes for more information on the Bill.
