Wild Mammals (Hunting with Dogs) Bill — Fox control in national parks — 6 Mar 1998
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
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:--
