The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) has recognised the efforts of former Labour MP Martin Salter in promoting and supporting shooting.

Mr Salter was the Labour party spokesman for angling and shooting and played a role in the first Labour charter for shooting sports, campaigns to exempt certain gundog breeds from the tail docking ban, and the abolition of game and game dealer licences. He now works as the national campaigns coordinator for the Angling Trust.

As a recognition of these contributions, BASC representatives presented Mr Salter with a framed print at a recent BASC council meeting where he was guest speaker.

“As a Labour MP Martin worked closely with BASC to avert threats, improve the law on shooting and promote the sport,” said BASC chairman, Alan Jarrett. “Both then and in his current role, Martin is an excellent friend to shooting.”

Mr Salter said, “I was extremely grateful for this kind award and look forward to the strong relationship between our two organisations continuing for many years to come.”
