Hunting with dogs: Ban — 19 Mar 2002 at 18:04

was absent

a free "indicative" vote to guide the Government on how to deal with the issue of hunting with dogs. Those voting "content" in this division were supporting a ban on hunting with dogs - in accordance with provision similar to Schedule 3 to the Hunting Bill as introduced in the Commons in Session 2000–01 [Bill 2].

Other votes covered the options of self-regulation of hunting and a licensing scheme. The House of Commons had held its own "indicative" votes the previous day.

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 74; Not-Contents, 331.
