Motion text

That this House agrees with the view expressed by the Countryside Alliance that its organisation would be ridiculed in Parliament on the publication of a letter sent in 2004 by the Masters of Fox Hounds Association to 800 hunt masters warning of the nationwide shortage of foxes and urging landowners to breed more foxes to solve the problem; and welcomes this further evidence that foxhunting is unconnected with pest control but is devoted entirely to sadistic pleasure derived from the protracted torment and death of foxes.
