Asked to explain the Prime Minister’s comments about fox hunting during a press conference at Leeds Castle at the weekend in which he had said that the Government had sought a compromise but, because it had been rejected, it was necessary to find a way through, the PMOS said that the next stage was the House of Lords. We would wait and see what happened there. Asked about the Prime Minister’s personal views on fox hunting, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister had already answered the question.
