Roger Bird has drawn my attention to the fact that on 31st October 2016 there is a debate in parliament on Hen Harriers and Moorland Issues. Roger and I have emailed our respective MPs asking them to attend the debate and to represent our concerns regarding Driven Grouse shooting and the plight of Hen Harriers.

Doncaster MPs and their email addresses are:
Ed Miliband MP – ed.miliband.mp@parliament.uk
Rosie Winterton – rosie.winterton.mp@parliament.uk
