    MPs to debate petitions about grouse shooting

    Received last night:
    Dear
    You recently signed the petition “Protect grouse Moors and grouse shooting”:
    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/164851

    This petition will be debated alongside e-petition 125003, which calls for a ban on grouse shooting. We will let you know the date of the debate as soon as it has been decided.
    You can read e-petition 125003 on the petitions site:
    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/125003

    Committee session:
    Before scheduling the debate, the Petitions Committee decided that MPs should have the chance to hear evidence on grouse shooting.
    On Tuesday 18 October at 2.15pm, MPs will hear from Mark Avery, the creator of e-petition 125003, and representatives from the RSPB, the Moorland Association and the Countryside Alliance.
    You can watch the session on Parliament TV: http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Guide
    You can find out more information about the session on the Petitions Committee website: http://www.parliament.uk/grouse-shoo...petition164851
    The transcript of what is said will help inform MPs taking part in the House of Commons debate.
    Get involved:
    The Committee also welcomes written contributions from people who
    want to share their expertise on this subject. In particular, the Committee
    would welcome contributions on the following points:

    - Should the law on grouse shooting be changed? If so, how?
    - What effect does grouse shooting have on wildlife and the environment?
    - What role does grouse shooting play in rural life, especially the rural
    economy?

    The deadline for submissions is 5 October.
    You can find out more and submit your contributions on the inquiry page: http://www.parliament.uk/grouse-shoo...petition164851
    The written submissions will be used to help inform the Committee session.
    The Petitions Committee is a cross-party group of MPs. It is independent from Government. You can find out more about the Committee on its website: http://www.parliament.uk/petitions-committee/role
    You can follow the Petitions Committee on Twitter: @HoCpetitions
    Thanks,
    The Petitions team
    UK Government and Parliament

    Yes, I received the email today.

    One thing that did strike me was the lack of the BASC being mentioned in this paragraph..............
