Hunting Bill — New Clause 11 — Registration in Respect of Hunting of Foxes — 30 Jun 2003 at 21:52
David Blunkett MP, Sheffield, Brightside voted in the minority (No).
The Aye-voters successfully passed an amendment to add new clause 11:
Registration under Part 2 shall not be effected in respect of the hunting of foxes.
This was the key amendment in changing the Bill away from the Government's proposal for registered hunting. The amendment made the bill absolutely ban the hunting of foxes with dogs.
