Covid-19 Restriction Letter to The Rt Hon George Eustice MP

The British Game Alliance has joined with BASC, CA, GWCT, NGO, MA and GFA to send a letter to Ministers emphasising the importance of game shooting to the rural economy and associated industries in the context of current lockdown restrictions.

We have joined this effort because it is vital that the restaurants, suppliers and retailers that stock BGA Assured Game can be confident in the supply of game this coming season. The letter explains how precautions can easily be applied during a day’s game shooting to ensure there is no increase in risk in relation to the transmission of COVID-19, and it lists the regulatory changes that will be needed to enable shooting to go ahead. Ideally, and pandemic permitting, these adjustments should be in place by 12 August. You can read the letter below.
