BASC chairman, Alan Jarrett, has welcomed the Norwegian parliament's decision to reintroduce lead shot for live quarry over non-wetlands.

The Norwegian parliament’s decision to reintroduce lead shot for live quarry over non-wetlands comes following lengthy campaigning from the Norwegian Association of Hunters and Anglers.

Alan Jarrett commented: “I welcome the decision of the Norwegian parliamentary committee to recommend the repeal of the law banning the use of lead shot over non-wetland areas. BASC firmly believes that all legislative decisions on ammunition should be based on sound science and this underpins our policy on lead ammunition of, ‘no sound evidence, no change.'”
