Here’s a map of signature distribution – you can see South West England and East Anglia are still particularly strong areas of support. Both are strong Pheasant shooting areas. It’s good to see that Therese Coffey’s constituents are still sending the Defra Secretary of State a strong message on what she should do.

Our action, supported by you, has already persuaded Defra to promise changes to licensing and for those to be discussed across the UK administrations. This would not have happened without our action – thank you for your brilliant support.
