Free Vote On Fox Hunting?

From a Telegraph article of 6th March:

“The Prime Minister has pledged to give MPs a free vote on whether to repeal the Hunting Act if the Tories win the election.

“People in the countryside must have “the freedom to hunt”, David Cameron has said, as he backed a repeal of the foxhunting ban.

He said that the act “has done nothing for animal welfare” and that he shares “the frustration” about the hunting ban.”

Cameron On Fox Hunting

He has a strange idea of animal welfare – ripped apart by dogs is OK, apparently.

A free vote for a repeal that he has declared he supports will be seen as a test of his Government – especially if he introduces the vote early on in the life of this new Government.

Support this petition to David Cameron to withdraw the vote.
