What is the Scottish Government seeking to achieve in this section?

What policy issues does this section of the consultation cover?
The main issues on which views are sought are:
- Strengthening the current legislation aiming to prevent release of invasive non-native species and providing powers to control non-native species
- Additional powers relating to causing and permitting an offence
- Overlap with other legislation or where legislation could be extended
- Changes via secondary legislation
