Dear Natural England,

2- Breakdown of the numbers for each of the following areas
a) West Gloucestershire
b)Somerset
c)Dorset
d)East Gloucestershire
e)Herefordshire
f)North Cornwall/Devon
Note:"East Gloucestershire" denotes a second cull area in Gloucestershire ie areas that are outside the initial West Gloucestershire cull zone.

3)Please provide dates of training days in 2015 for badger cull and numbers of attendees. Please also, where possible, include dates for future training days and, where possible, the proposed numbers of attendees.
