Statement on reports that the Government will announce measures to widen the exemptions within the Hunting Act

Alan Jarrett, Chairman of BASC said:

“BASC would support the widening of the exemptions within the Hunting Act to allow more than two dogs to flush foxes to guns. This would be a step on the road to achieving resolution of the problems created by the Hunting Act. It will also help secure effective pest control for farmers, which contributes to food security. There is widespread agreement that shooting is an effective form of pest control and a move to widen the exemptions would underline that point.”
