To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the size of the red squirrel population in England.
Answer (Lord Gardiner of Kimble)
There is insufficient data to give an accurate figure however the recent Review of the Population and Conservation Status of British Mammals (2018), a report by The Mammal Society under contract to Natural England, Natural Resources Wales and Scottish Natural Heritage, estimated the red squirrel population in England to be in the region of 39,000.
