ECCLR Committee – final evidence session of the Deer Management Review

The ECCLR Committee is undertaking a review of deer management and, on 24 January in its final evidence session, heard for the second time from SNH.  This gave SNH an opportunity to respond to the criticism levelled at its Report Deer Management in Scotland published in November 2016. 

You can watch the video record of this and the previous ECCLR Committee evidence sessions on Scottish Parliament TV here http://bit.ly/2hvxa9d

The draft written report of that final evidence session is available here http://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/report.aspx?r=10750&mode=pdf

We now await the Committee’s findings, its report to the Cabinet Secretary and her proposals and any subsequent actions to be taken by the Scottish Government.

The provisional date and venue for the LDNS AGM are as follows:

Friday 28 April 2017 from 10.00 – 13.00hrs
Venue: Leapark Hotel, Bo'ness Rd, Grangemouth FK3 9BX.
Confirmation of the meeting and an agenda will be circulated nearer the time.
