Hunting Bill — 20 Dec 2000

Aye voters supported the second reading of the Hunting Bill, as proposed by the Government. The Bill was an "options Bill", containing three different options, to allow hunting to continue under self-supervision or under licence or to ban it. MPs would vote between these options at a later date.
