- 20 May 2019
As noted in the report following the seventh meeting of the Grouse Moor Management Group in December 2018, the Group completed its evidence gathering with meetings on 3 and 20 December. Since then, meetings of the Group have focused on agreeing recommendations and drafting the report. At these meetings only the six Group members have been present; the specialist advisers not being included at this stage in our work.
Following the February 2019 meeting of the Group I was incapacitated by illness and signed off work for two months. As a result the planned schedule of meetings in 2019 has been revised. The most recent meeting was on 9 May with two further meetings scheduled in June. The Group now plans to submit its report to the Cabinet Secretary during the summer.
I do not anticipate making any further reports on the work of my Group in advance of submitting our report to the Cabinet Secretary.
