Baroness Northover 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 the self-regulation of hunting with dogs - in accordance with provision similar to Schedule 1 to the Hunting Bill as introduced in the Commons in Session 2000–01 [Bill 2].

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

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 97; Not-Contents, 119.
