Scottish Natural Heritage Report on Deer Management in Scotland 2016-17
In Session 4, the Scottish Parliament's Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee undertook an inquiry into deer management in Scotland. As a result of this inquiry, the Committee sent a letter to the Minister for Environment and Climate Change, and the response contained a commitment for SNH to review the effectiveness of deer control arrangements.
In November 2016, Scottish Natural Heritage published a report to the Scottish Government on Deer Management in Scotland and the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee agreed to consider this as part of its work programme.
The Committee considered this issue from November 2016 until March 2017 when it published a report and held a debate.
