GPC has updated its guidance to GPs on responding to police requests for information relating to firearms licencing. The comprehensive new guidance includes advice on charging fees to applicants and a number of template letter resources.
A key point of the guidance, which has been produced following the obtaining of further expert legal opinion states: The failure or refusal of an applicant to pay a reasonable fee entitles you to refuse to engage further in the firearms certification process.
The new guidance is available on the BMA website at https://www.bma.org.uk/news/2017/march/bma-continues-to-seek-fair-firearms-licensing-process
