Jonathan Djanogly opposes calls to ban grouse shooting

31st October 2016

Speaking in a debate on grouse shooting, Jonathan Djanogly opposes calls to ban shooting grouse as it would have a destructive effect on the countryside, lose jobs and the raptors would lose their local food source.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

My hon. Friend is making a very powerful case. It seems to me that the opponents of shooting grouse want to throw the baby out with the bathwater, because if we destroy grouse shooting, the raptors would lose their food source, local jobs would be lost and, as my hon. Friend is saying, the environment would be the poorer. The argument is not about conservation, but about destruction of the countryside.

Steve Double

I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. Again, I agree with the points he makes.
