S5W-00706: Claudia Beamish (South Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 16 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether Scottish Natural Heritage will revise its statutory cull return forms for 2016-17 to include space for the owner's or occupier’s planned cull in the following year.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 29 June 2016

Scottish Natural Heritage is currently considering the detail of how the new powers contained in the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 to request information on future culls will work in practice. For the 2016-17 season, this likely will include requests for future culls from some specific properties, but not necessarily be applied at a national scale.
