Firearms: Game Licences

Volume 692: debated on Wednesday 13 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will abolish game licences for shooters of game; and, if so, when they will abolish such licences. [HL4138]

The final draft regulatory reform order was laid before Parliament for final scrutiny on 4 June 2007. The draft order has a coming-into-force date of 1 August 2007, but this is subject to the parliamentary approval process. If successful, the need for a licence to take or kill game will be abolished.
