Hunting with Dogs: Hunting Under Licence — 18 Mar 2002 at 21:59

Anne Begg MP, Aberdeen South voted with the majority (No).

The Aye-voters failed to pass the motion:

That this House considers that the hunting of wild mammals with dogs should be required to be regulated in accordance with arrangements similar to those set out in Schedule 2 to the Hunting Bill as introduced into the Commons last session [Bill 2].-[Alun Michael.]
The rejected schedule would allowed hunting to continue under a licensing scheme.
