Hunting ban anniversary – MP warns ‘keep cruelty history’

On the anniversary of the Hunting Act, 18th February, Labours Angela Smith, MP for Basildon and East Thurrock, has issued a warning that the Conservative Party is committed to repealing the Act if it wins the General Election.

Angela said, “Parliament spent many hours debating the detail of the ban on hunting, to produce the Act we have. Now if he were to win the election later this year David Cameron wants to bring back the pursuit of foxes, deer and hares by packs of dogs – I had hoped that in the 21st century we had finally consigned these barbaric activities to the dustbin of history.”

Angela added, “the vast majority of the public support the ban on hunting and want to see our wildlife protected – the vast majority of Conservative candidates would bring back hunting and allow wildlife to be pursued to the death for sport. I hope people will question their election candidates very carefully on this matter. Not many issues are a clear cut ‘yes’ or ‘no’, but on this one it is very easy – either we support the current ban or not.”

Before her election as an MP, Angela built up an expertise on the subject as an officer of the League Against Cruel Sports.
