In a statement issued by the Federation for Hunting and Conservation (FKNK) it said that yesterday morning the Prime Minister Dr. Joseph Muscat together with Environment Minister Leo Brincat and Parliamentary Secretary Roderick Galdes, met officials of the FKNK during which more details regarding the spring hunting season were discussed.
The FKNK said that during the meeting it was explained to its officials the reasons why some of the proposals requested by the FKNK, could not be effected by this season.
The Federation said that the Government remained committed to honouring the conclusions reached between them, as announced in the joint statement of the PL and FKNK on the 4th of March.
FKNK said that it was “confirmed in the meeting that, in line with part of the joint statement, in a derogation to permit this limited season of spring hunting, the special license fee of € 50 for hunting would be eliminated and hunters will not have to wear an arm band. It was also confirmed by the Government that it will immediately begin work on the necessary studies so that as far as possible, all the conclusions of the joint statement are in place for the next spring season.”
