BASC statement on the Hunting Act

BASC strongly opposes the Hunting Act, and believes land owners and managers should be able to choose the most effective methods of pest and predator control for their circumstances.

The new government has committed to a free vote on repealing the Hunting Act.  The Countryside Alliance, which represents hunting, is working with Parliamentarians from across the political spectrum as part of that process.

Resolution of this issue is long overdue. BASC will continue to oppose attacks on legitimate country sports from whatever quarter they may arise.
