Dear NSRA Club,
The Offensive Weapons Bill is to be debated on Monday 15th October 2018. The following amendment, which is the new Clause 3 and which had been unsuccessful in the previous debate, has been re-tabled.
The proposed amendment, if accepted, will eliminate the use of Section 11(4) exemption, which is in wide use by NSRA affiliated clubs and organisations, including Scouts and Cadets. Many affiliated clubs benefit from the use of Section 11(4) exemption certificates issued by the NSRA. Any amendment to this valuable legislation will have a significant impact on the management of affiliated clubs and groups.
