M&S says it is doing this because it cannot agree “environmental and biodiversity standards” with “key stakeholders”. This came as a surprise as M&S had not been discussing such standards with its suppliers or shooting organisations. What it actually means is that the RSPB, which is actively campaigning against driven grouse shooting, has complained about grouse sales and M&S has rolled over. Read on to write to M&S via our automated system.
