Hunting Bill — New Clause 14 — Registration in Respect of Hunting of Mink — 30 Jun 2003 at 22:07

Charles Hendry MP, Wealden voted in the minority (No).

The Aye-voters successfully passed an amendment to add new clause 14:

Registration under Part 2 shall not be effected in respect of the hunting of mink.

This amendment was the "sister amendment" to one banning the hunting of foxes. This amendment absolutely banned the hunting of mink with dogs.
