Ribble Valley MP seeks residents’ views on badger cull
5:09pm Thursday 25th October 2012 in News
NIGEL Evans is urging East Lancashire residents with views on culling badgers to write to him so he can feed their opinions into the government’s consultations on the issue.
The Ribble Valley Tory welcomed the Government’s decision to delay the two pilot projects the West Country until next summer.
Now he wants to make sure Ministers get the final decision right before marksmen start shooting badgers to try and tackle tuberculosis in cows.
Mr Evans said:“I have received a large amount of correspondence in the past few weeks from constituents who are concerned about the proposed badger cull and it is important that the Government comes to the best decision.
“If anybody would like me to pass on their views to the minister, I would be happy to do so and grateful if they could write to me at the House of Commons. I will ensure that their opinion is heard.”
