Lib Dem spokesperson welcomes news of another Conservative U turn (this time: fox hunting)

by Jackie Porter on 4 July, 2017

Commenting on news that the Conservatives have U-turned on plans to hold a parliamentary vote on bringing back fox hunting, Lib Dem Rural Affairs spokesperson Kate Parminter said:

“It’s good news that the Government has dropped this proposal. It was a ridiculous idea to reopen a debate which was comprehensively decided on ten years ago.

“In these uncertain times, the Government should be focusing on the real priorities for rural communities and protecting the wildlife and countryside that they cherish.”
