Countryside Alliance head of campaigns Tim Bonner said: “This is a bizarre decision by M&S, which seems to have bowed to minimal pressure from a vocal minority of anti-shooting activists. We are now in a ridiculous situation where grouse moors are being judged on standards of which they have no knowledge, with the result that M&S claims it is unable to achieve 3rd party accreditation for those moors.
