Please could you confirm whether or not the council has initiated (or been involved with) any prosecutions for offences committed under the Zoo Licensing Act 1981 by zoos operating (either currently or historically) within your council's jurisdiction between the 1st January 2008 to the present day.
I can confirm that there has been no such action either directly or indirectly by this Borough within the time frame specified. For this reason I have no further information to supply in this regard.

It is my understanding that I have covered all points of your request however, please do not hesitate to contact me should you believe that I have omitted anything from my response.
