What the Petitions Committee is doing

Petition Extend "rule of six" to ensure that hunting and shooting are banned

Ensure that the recent restrictions of social gatherings to six individuals from different households also extend to outdoor activities including the hunting and shooting of grouse, foxes, and other animals.

More details

This is a time of national crisis, when everyone's personal freedoms have been necessarily limited. It is therefore entirely unacceptable that special provisions be given to particular pastimes and leisure purists. COVID-19 doesn't distinguish between 30 people gathered to hunt grouse, and 30 people gathered to play and watch football, rugby, ultimate frisbee, quidditch or any other sport.

The government should ensure that all groups abide by the rules. Only then will this crisis be averted.
