Hunting Bill — New Clause 6 — Use of Dogs Below Ground (No. 2) — 30 Jun 2003 at 21:45

Mr Roger Godsiff MP, Birmingham, Sparkbrook and Small Heath voted with the majority (No).

The Aye-voters failed to pass an amendment by the Middle Way group to add new clause 6:

(1) Registration under Part 2 may be effected in respect of hunting that involves the use of a dog below ground.
(2) The Secretary of State may make regulations for the recognition of any existing body as the proper authority for making a code in respect of the conduct of any activity in connection with the use of dogs below ground on wild mammals.

The unamended Bill banned hunting with terriers underground but the amendment would have allowed it to be licensed.
