Motion text

That this House celebrates the Government's record on animal welfare; believes the Hunting Act 2004 banning fox hunting, hare coursing, hare hunting and stag hunting is in keeping with the current ideas on animal welfare; notes that over 75 per cent. of the public supports the ban; deplores the flouting of the law by some practitioners of fox hunting; and supports campaigns such as Keep Cruelty History that are strongly opposed to any attempt to repeal the Hunting Act.
