I thought I would contact them a week or so ago to ask about the future of fieldsports if they are elected
this is the reply that I received last night. It was as black and white as I was expecting. Needless to say I voted elsewhere!
Our policies do not deal with fieldsports in particular (by which I believe
you are referring to shooting birds and fishing?). However, the Green Party
is fundamentally opposed to all blood-sports. We oppose the killing of, or
infliction of pain or suffering upon, animals in the name of sport or
leisure, and will work to end all such practices. We recognise that the
protection of natural habitats is an important issue, especially in our
constituency, home to some of the most beautiful areas in the country.
However, this habitat can be preserved without killing animals for leisure.
I hope this has answered your question, if you would like to read more about
