BASC will highlight value of shooting ahead of General Election

 
BASC will work to ensure General Election candidates understand the value of shooting to the UK economy.

The UK’s largest shooting organisation, with 148,000 members, will relaunch its dedicated General Election campaign website to allow members and those who shoot to contact their local election candidate.

 

The website will allow people to see candidates’ views on shooting and to email candidates to establish their position if they have not recorded one. It will also enable people to promote shooting to candidates and to invite them to find out more.

 

BASC chairman Peter Glenser said: “Prospective MPs need to know that shooting is a force for good for the economy, for conservation and for social wellbeing.

 

“This website will allow us to make sure shooting’s voice is heard in Westminster. Candidates will be left in no doubt that shooting matters to their constituents and it will provide is with a good indication of where MPs stand in the next parliament.

 

“Shooting generates £2 billion for the economy every year and generates 3.9 million work days on conservation. It also supports the equivalent of 74,000 full-time jobs. BASC will make the resources available to ensure that shooting’s voice is heard.”
