Thread: Hunting Act Amendment (England and Wales)

  1. #1

    Hunting Act Amendment (England and Wales)

    Many of you will have seen coverage of the proposed amendments to the Hunting Act, which will be debated in the House of Commons next Wednesday. If not, I'm guessing you will over the next 6 days!

    While falling well short of a full repeal of the act, the proposed amendments would allow for a more pragmatic approach to hunting, allowing more than the current arbitrary restriction of two hounds to be used when flushing to a gun. If nothing else, those organising fox drives in large areas of cover will be able to use a sensible number of dogs.

    You can let your MP know your feelings on the matter by clicking here. It takes about 1 minute.

    Already done it. Let's hope common sense finally prevails.

    Hopefully this will open the door to having the stupid tail-docking legislation overturned for working dogs, too
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    Did it Tuesday, wonder if my MP will reply?
    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

    To quote Andrew Turner MP Isle of Wight today "in the event of a free vote, I will vote to repeal the Hunting Act"

    Seems similar to what we already have in Scotland.

    So it is hoped that the SNP will refrain from voting against as it simply brings England more or less in line with North Britain.
