The National Gamekeepers' Organisation (NGO) says the announcement by Natural England (NE), made today (16/09/14), following its General Licences Consultation, is "a victory for common sense and the countryside". The NGO - which represents the gamekeepers of England and Wales - has welcomed the Board of NE's decision to implement fewer than a third of all the proposals on bird control that the Government's conservation advisor had circulated for public scrutiny in February. NE's move follows extensive lobbying by the NGO and its gamekeeper members, as well as other representative countryside organisations.

In deciding which proposals to take forward, NE has adopted most of the measures the NGO had argued for during the consultation process, with the conclusions the NE Board reached frequently mirroring the stance the NGO took in its detailed written submission. Licensing changes, which the NGO had called "sensible improvements", have been accepted by NE, while proposed amendments, the gamekeeping body had slammed as "ludicrous and impractical", are now dropped.
