AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO SOMETHING WHICH COULD MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

Recommended Posts

For those not already aware, Alison Johnstone MSP (Scottish Green Party) has tabled a Private Member’s Bill, which if approved would have a severe, negative impact on all forms of hunting with dogs. It is presently out for public consultation and that consultation period ends on 15th September 2019, which is less than a month away. It’s essential that you and as many other likeminded individuals as possible respond before that date.

Before responding, it’s advisable to read the comments and notes of guidance provided by the Scottish Countryside Alliance and/or Scottish Association of Country Sports. These can be found at: https://www.countryside-alliance.org/getattachment/cd8b72ad-d577-4523-bbcb-5b19a6e89461/Alison-Johnstone-Consultation-Countryside-Alliance-Response_.pdf?lang=en-GB and   https://www.sacs.org.uk/media/uploads/cat-252/banning-fox-and-hare-control-in-scotland-sacs-consultation-guidance-for-members.pdf

The survey is also available online and can be completed at: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/WildMammals/

It’s important to complete the survey in full (including names and addresses) and no matter how frustrating, or ridiculous you may find some of the proposals, please remember “courtesy at all times”. There's no extra points for belligerence, or for rudeness, the purpose of the exercise is to improve awareness, NOT to make any more enemies than we already have.

For anyone who has concerns about including their name and address I would stress, that this is a Government based survey of your views and opinions on what's being proposed (nothing more and nothing less). Because it includes personal data it must and will be registered under Data Protection Legislation and as such your privacy is protected and guaranteed by Law.

What individuals choose to do, or not do, is their own personal choice, that's between them and their conscience. But you can be certain that our opponents will be doing just that, along with their grandmother and no doubt the cat next door too.
