Wild Mammals (Hunting with Dogs) Bill — Fox control in national parks — 6 Mar 1998

Dominic Grieve MP, Beaconsfield voted in the minority (No).

As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Madam Speaker:

With this, it will be convenient to discuss the following: New clause 3-- Mink --

Under the clause, if a dog is used to stalk a wild mammal, steps must be taken to shoot the wild mammal as soon as possible, so it follows that a dog must not, in any circumstances, be allowed to kill it. However, the Bill permits dogs to be used for certain purposes.

Question put, That the Question be now put:--

The House proceeded to a Division--

The House having divided: Ayes 186, Noes 60.
