Repeal of the Act banning hunting with dogs

Comment 11th July 2010

The Labour government introduced (in 2003/4?) legislation banning hunting with dogs. This should be repealed. Hunting of this kind is a long-established activity. Introducing this kind of law was a perfect example of the state interfering in a societal activity, without creating a  sufficient benefit to other members of society. It criminalised ordinary people, and risked appearing to be motivated by class resentment

I do not hunt myself, nor do I associate with anyone who does.

My objection is one of principle on the way government should work: it was a significant factor in my voting against Labour in the last two elections 

Why does this matter?

It would be an important case of scaling back Government intrusion
