Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 14 June 2018

The Scottish Government monitors the effectiveness of the Environmental Protection (Restriction on Use of Lead Shot) (Scotland) (No. 2) Regulations 2004 through reported crimes and prosecutions. In addition, informal monitoring is undertaken by local and National Nature Reserve wildfowling wardens and local authority rangers where wildfowling on the foreshore is controlled through a permit system.
