Hunting with Dogs: Ban — 18 Mar 2002 at 22:14

Mr Dan Norris MP, Wansdyke voted in the minority (Teller for the Noes).

The Aye-voters passed the motion:

That this House considers that the hunting of wild mammals with dogs should be prohibited in accordance with provision similar to Schedule 3 to the Hunting Bill as introduced in the Commons last Session [Bill 2].-[Alun Michael.]

This vote indicated a preference to ban hunting with dogs instead of allowing it to continue under either a self-supervision or a licensing scheme.
