BASC, Countryside Alliance, the National Gamekeepers Organisation, the Moorland Association and the Gun Trade Association are among those involved in the survey.

The Westminster Eight – 18 years on
15:01In September 2004, eight campaigners broke in to the chamber of the House of Commons to protest against Tony Blair's ban on hunting with hounds. Blair was ignoring the largest ever peacetime march, more than 400,000 people, who marched on Westminster in 2002 protesting against the same law. Blair's ban, which came into force in 2005, has achieved the opposite of what blair hoped. It has damaged animal welfare and hunting is more popular than ever. At the 2022 Game Fair, six members of the Westminster Eight come to the Carter Jonas Game Fair Theatre to relive that day. They tell Charlie Jacoby the story of what happened and the repercussions.
