Thread: Game Licence in Scotland this coming year.

  1. #1

    Game Licence in Scotland this coming year.

    Will I be needing a new game licence come the 31st July?
    I saw the comment from BASC about the legislation changes but I am not sure when they might come into effect.

    I found this on BASC - - Changes to the Law Affecting Game Licences in the United Kingdom

    It has not been a requirement to hold a game licence to kill or deal in game in England and Wales since 1 August 2007.
    Game licences and game dealers licences have been abolished in Scotland with effect from 7 April 2011 when the new Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Bill was passed.
    With effect from 13 June 2011 the requirement to have a licence to kill game or deal in game has been abolished in Northern Ireland. This came into effect with the passing of the Wildlife and Natural Environment Act 2011.

    Thanks for that. I wonder how long it will be before the land agents get the message?

    Game licences

    Game licences were abolished by Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Act 2011. The Act isn't all in force yet, but this part was commenced at the end of June. Venison dealers licences are still required under the Deer (Scotland) Act 1996.
