S5W-22392: Colin Smyth (South Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 27 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government when it will consult on proposed changes to the Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act 2002, and whether it aims to bring the changes into force before May 2021.

Answered by: Mairi Gougeon 5 April 2019

The Scottish Government consulted in 2017 on the recommendations made by Lord Bonomy in his review of the Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act 2002. We expect to consult on any changes to the law on fox hunting that we may propose.

The Scottish Government will announce its plans for future legislative programmes in due course.
