Reinstate general licenses gl04,05,06

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

The revoking of the General Licenses GL04,05 and 06 has now stopped farmers of crops and livestock and authorised persons from using lethal methods (when non lethal methods have failed) of pest control as and when needed. This also extends to the controlling of specific species of birds that are vectors for disease around urban areas. Although these methods can be used after a ‘individual license’ has been obtained it has essentially just wrapped it up in lots of red tap, costing valuable time and money, something the farming community hasn’t got. Making it harder for farmers and authorised persons to protect crops and livestock as and when needed, damages the farming, shooting and conservation communities.

Taking away the tools to do the job will not yield good results.
