Hunting vote

Asked if the Prime Minister had not voted because of security reasons, the PMOS said the Prime Minister had not voted because he had had other business to attend to. It was up to individual MPs in a free vote to vote whichever way they wished to.

Asked if the Prime Minister thought it would have been better to try and resolve the issue without getting into ‘this mess’, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister and Alun Michael had made repeated attempts to try and resolve the issue. Unfortunately those attempts had not been successful. Therefore the Prime Minister believed it important to build in a delay that allowed people time to adapt. It had been clear yesterday afternoon that it had been successful and a compromise had been reached. As it had been a free vote MPs voted in the ways they had.

Asked about hypothetical scenarios under the Parliament Act, the PMOS would not be drawn and said this matter should be taken step by step.

  1. Before leaving on your hunting trip, prepare yourself well. Never go to an unplanned location or take off on a spontaneous hunting trip. Let others know where you are planning to hunt and when you will be returning. If necessary, leave detailed directions to your hunting grounds with friends or family that will be staying home in case an emergency arises and they need to direct medical personnel to your location. Try to return home as close to your planned time as possible. If you are late checking in, your contact person can then know to set out using your directions to see if you need assistance. ^:”,

This is not a way of contacting the Prime Minister. If you would like to contact the Prime Minister, go to the 10 Downing Street official site.
