Whilst only 1 of the successful PCC candidates, Arfon Jones, Plaid Cymru, North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner, declared their support for shooting.
If you do establish the views of your local assembly member or PCC, who has so far yet to declare their position, please email us.
BASC will continue to lobby AMs and work with them for the benefit of shooting. BASC will also assist AMs in setting up a cross-party group for shooting and conservation in the Welsh Assembly. BASC provided organisational support for a similar Cross Party Group in the last Assembly.
