Fox Hunting

Asked how urgent the Prime Minister considered the fox hunting issue to be in terms of when it would be brought forward in Parliament, the PMOS said that he had nothing further to add to what had already been said about the issue. Asked if it would be discussed in Cabinet on Thursday, the PMOS pointed out that there was no Cabinet meeting this week. Asked the Government’s latest position on the issue, the PMOS said that it had not changed. As everyone was aware, the matter had been up for discussion. When we had anything further to say about it, we would let people know.

Briefing took place at 11:00 | Search for related news

  2. Yeah, you tell it. How dare those journalists interfere with the natural flow this website by asking questions they asked on previous days to a Prime Minister’s spokesman during a live, face-to-face press briefing.

    Really, how thoughtless of them.

  4. Hunting and specifically in this case fox hunting is an issue that comes up on a regular basis
    Both sides consider their viewpoint to be the only right one. I do not personally hunt as a sport yet it seems interesting that the pro hunting groups sees it as their cultural right. The other side is against hunting. They may even be vegetarian yet take away their cell phones , or have the cell phone battery go dead and they will scream blue murder.
    The hunting issue reminds me of a report that Borat filed – he asked a hunter if hunting down and killing him a little animal made him feel powerfull
    Poor little foxes fighting for their lives
