I think I mentioned that I had written to my MP and he promised to be in touch with the Minister. This morning's mail brought a response from the Minister, Rory Stewart. After the usual courtesies, he writes "The independent Lead Ammunition Group was established to consider the effect of lead shot on human health and wildlife. The Government is considering the Lead Ammunition Group's report carefully and will respond to it as soon as possible."
Lead shot, not lead pellets?
