A draft response to the Government consultation is available to read here and if anyone has any comments that they would also like to be considered, we would be delighted to receive them. We have also prepared a letter in support of our response, to which anglers and other members of the public could add their names and signatures before sending them to the Scottish Government, which can be downloaded here. We shall then be presenting our draft response to the Public Meeting that we have arranged for the 19th April in the Fleming Hall in Aberlour. The deadline for submission of the final response is the 2nd May 2016.
