BASC launches Scottish and Welsh manifestos


BASC has today launched the Scottish and Welsh manifestos for sustainable shooting, prior to the elections on 6 May.

The country-specific manifestos will play a key part in BASC’s representation to the political parties and prospective candidates in the run up to the elections. 

The manifestos seek to ensure all parliamentarians from all parties recognise the value of shooting.  They also stress the importance of shooting to the rural economies and livelihoods in Scotland and Wales.

The manifestos set out BASC’s position on key issues and explain our workload in parliament following next month’s elections. 

Over the coming month BASC will be holding rural hustings and individual meetings with prospective candidates to ensure our members’ voices are heard.
