I’m still backing the foxhunting ban – and spoke with campaigners about it in Parliament.
I attended a Parliamentary reception for the League, met with President Bill Oddie and discussed a number of animal welfare issues. The League are currently campaigning for stronger sentences for crimes involving cruelty to animals -; something which I was pleased to lend his support to.
I’m still committed to the ban on foxhunting.
The move by the Conservatives during this year’s election campaign to allow a vote on bringing back foxhunting generated a strong reaction in Wrexham. Almost as soon as Theresa May had floated the possibility, I had people contacting me to oppose any change to the law and to ask me to vote to keep the ban.
I’ve been a long term backer of the ban on fox hunting, and was happy to tell them then -; and to re-confirm now -; that I back the ban.
