Truss welcomes the re-opening of zoos

The Prime Minister today announced that zoos and safari parks will be able to open from Monday 15th June. Liz has been supporting Banham Zoo, which is located in Liz’s South West Norfolk constituency, for the zoo to be re-opened and has been lobbying ministers on this.

Liz Truss MP commented ‘Today’s announcement is excellent news and will be widely welcomed. I have been working with parliamentary colleagues and local councils to support zoos during this extremely challenging time. Banham Zoo and Africa Alive have worked hard on appropriate social distancing and hygiene measures and last week made the case to DEFRA about their operational approach during covid19.’
