BASC urges members to have their say on licensing in Scotland

The British Association for Shooting and Conservation is urging members in Scotland to take part in a survey of the firearms licensing process.

The HM Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland (HMICS) is undertaking an inspection of Police Scotland’s licensing arrangements and wants to hear from those who have applied in the last two years for a firearm, shotgun or air gun certificate.

Colin Shedden, BASC’s Scotland director, said: "We welcome this pro-active approach by HMICS and the survey is a great opportunity for members to voice any concerns, which could help shape the future of the licencing system here in Scotland."

The anonymous survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and the deadline for responses is Friday, 3 November 2017.
