The British Shooting and Conservation Association (BASC) today (6 April) launched the Scottish and Welsh ‘Manifesto for Sustainable Shooting’ ahead of the May 6 elections.
The manifestos aim to ensure that all politicians recognize the value of shooting and its importance to rural economies and livelihoods.
The manifestos set out BASC’s position on key issues and outline our direction to follow after next month’s elections.
Steve Griffiths, Director of BASC Wales, said: “BASC’s request is simply to work with stakeholders on policy development for campaign management. We make these recommendations in good faith and with an open invitation to discuss them with elected officials, parliamentary candidates, decision-makers and stakeholders.
Ross Ewing, Director of Public Affairs at BASC Scotland, said: “The Scottish Manifesto outlines five key policies that we would like to see adopted in the next Scottish Parliament. BASC is ready to work with any party to ensure the future of sustainable shooting. ”
