Policymakers urged to value benefits of shooting in countryside


Policymakers are being urged to consider new research highlighting the benefits of shooting in the countryside.
The Country Land and Business Association said the report – The Value of Shooting – conducted by Cambridge-based Public and Corporate Economic Consultants (PACEC) contained striking figures showing just how much the rural economy and environment relies on shooting.
CLA President Henry Robinson said: “The figures in this comprehensive, independent report are striking. Worth around £2billion to UK businesses and supporting the equivalent of 74,000 jobs, it is clear that shooting adds a vital stimulus to the rural economy.
“Many rural businesses found the trading environment challenging as a result of the 2008 financial crisis - shooting provides a shining example of how resilient the rural economy can be.
“More than that, shooting providers spend nearly £250million on protecting the landscape and are integral in ensuring the most effective management of the land."
Mr Robinson added “It is important that policymakers consider these facts which are based on extensive research, when making future policy decisions.
“Shooting delivers economic growth, but its value must not be underestimated if the countryside is also going to flourish economically and environmentally.”
