Shooting and the Welsh Assembly & PCC elections

Many thanks to all our members who took the trouble to contact their respective candidates for both the Welsh Assembly elections and the Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

With the results for all constituencies and regions in Wales in, with your assistance BASC has been able to identify the following Assembly Members (AMs), from all parties, who are supportive of shooting according to the current law and codes of practice.

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.
