The Countryside Alliance has written to all parliamentary candidates, for whom we have contact details, asking them to sign up to six key pledges:
– Delivering full digital connectivity.
– Mandatory country of origin food labelling.
– Tackling crime in rural areas.
– Opposing unjustified restrictions on firearms and punitive increases in the cost of licences.
– Making Post Offices the front office of government.
–Taking an evidence-based approach to wildlife and environmental management, opposing any further restrictions on legitimate rural activities such as hunting, shooting and fishing.
