BASC statement following the General Election:



“BASC is committed to working with a new government to ensure that shooting’s value to rural communities is recognised and that its contribution to the UK economy is acknowledged.


“Shooting is worth an estimated £2 billion to the UK economy annually and supports the equivalent of 74,000 full-time jobs. That contribution to the health of the nation must be protected.


“The General Election result adds uncertainty to the political landscape, but BASC has an excellent record of working with parties of all colours to protect shooting’s interests. Those efforts will continue apace in the coming weeks and months.


“In the run up to the election, BASC asked its members to use its dedicated website to lobby candidates and to help establish their position on shooting. The information we received from that process will now be used to ensure we build relationships with those who are new to Parliament to ensure we influence decisions that affect shooting and help shape the future for the rural economy and rural communities.


“BASC will be seeking early meetings with Ministers. Achieving positive outcomes for shooting remains BASC’s single-minded focus and we will work with all sides in this Parliament to achieve results which benefit shooting.


"We are ready to work for our members whatever developments there are in the coming days."
