Following the resignation of Alan Jarrett as Chairman of BASC, Council unanimously elected Peter Glenser as Chairman. Mr. Glenser’s term as Chairman will end at Council’s meeting on the 18th June when a further election for Chairman will be held.
The following tendered their resignation from Council: Alan Balfour, Jonathan Garton and Alan Jarrett. Two further members of Council will be elected on the 18th June.
Peter Glenser is often described in the shooting press as the “UK’s leading firearms barrister”. He specialises in the law relating to firearms, crime and regulatory law especially in rural and agricultural matters. He is a keen shot, a member of the Worshipful Company of Gunmakers and has served on Council since 2009. He writes for The Shooting Gazette, Gun Trade News and other publications on matters concerning firearms law. He recently represented members of the Lamerton Hunt privately prosecuted by the League Against Cruel Sports. The League’s case collapsed when Mr. Glenser revealed the close links between the League and the expert witness.
