MPs will decide on hunt changes says Cameron

Have your say

MPs have the final say on proposals to increase the number of hunting dogs allowed to be used to flush out foxes.

Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed the decision yesterday amid calls for him to end speculation that the Hunting Act might 
be repealed or amended to remove the limit on the number of dogs.

Campaigners have been pushing the Government to scrap a ban on using more than two dogs to flush out foxes so they can be shot, with farmers saying attacks on lambs have increased.

Speaking during Prime Minister’s Questions, Mr Cameron said: “This will quite properly be a matter for the House of Commons.”
