P-05-1136 Allow Welsh residents to travel for fishing the same as our counterparts in England

Text of Petition:                     

Welsh anglers are fed up with being treated differently to those in England.


Currently we are not allowed to travel locally for exercise. England during tier 4 are allowed to travel and even whilst in tier 5.


We as anglers understand the dangers that are out there with the covid-19 pandemic, however anglers use this time to maintain their mental wellbeing, concentration and to reduce their stress levels. This socially distanced sport should be brought back for all.
