At the second time of asking the Public Enquiry Point for the APPG for Shooting (and Conservation) came up with a list of its members. Thank you.

It would be wrong necessarily to expect that every person on this list is an active, keen and accomplished shooter of wildlife, but some certainly are.

The members of the group are colour-coded below as follows: Northern Ireland MPs of all parties, Conservative, Labour, LibDem and SNP. And I have annotated the list with the number of signatures for our e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting that have come from these MPs’ constituencies. If all constituencies had provided 154 signatures then we would have reached 100,000 signatures and I have indicated those MPs whose constituencies have already passed 154 signatures by showing them in **bold**.

For an All-Party Group it is quite a blue, Conservative-dominated list.

And whilst it is unlikely they will step away to avoid any conflict of interest any honourable member(s) might abstain from any vote? That assumes deals are not done elsewhere .... I would be most interested in justification of membership of Richard Benyon given the current complaint.

By all means input (as 'experts'), but any role in any decision making makes a mockery of objectivity?

What a lot of them!

Northern Diver - yes there are a lot. I thought that too.

Explains why I haven't had a reply. And no, she wasn't on holiday.

My MP Tory is not on that list and I am still waiting a reply as is another constituent that wrote that I know about.

It could be great if there was a Wildlife Conservation groups APPG. I would be interested who would join it.

That's a very good suggestion must be some MP's with this type of interest. In Scottish Parliament they have a Cross Party Group on Rural Issues which I am looking to attend and see if there are any like minded MSP's!

After downloading the GWCT Hen Harrier Fact Sheet (Their words!) I am now receiving their e-newsletters. I note that there is also an APPG on Game & Wildlife Conservation (!!!) which the GWCT are the secretariat for and it lists 3 Conservatives amongst the office bearers. There is a meeting today as I write this on Predator Control. Can anyone shed any light on what is being discussed? I will drop the GWCT contact for Public Enquiries, who is given as based in Scotland, for a list of members!
