Environment secretary calls to scrap fox hunting ban

Elizabeth Truss reopened the fox-hunting row last night by calling for the ban to be scrapped.

In an interview with the Sunday Express, Ms Truss said the Hunting Act had been a “mistake” and said she would vote for a repeal if Parliament allows time for the issue to be debated.

Ms Truss also defended the badger cull, stating it is “the right approach to deal with the issue”.


Tory MP Liz Truss has said she has "severely reprimanded" a member of staff after an e-mail describing a constituent as "unhinged", intended for Ms Truss, was instead sent to the constituent. Constituent Thomas Ryan had been seeking advice from Ms Truss on an unfair dismissal case.


Childcare should be 'more affordable'

Childcare in the UK is in dire need of change to make it more affordable, argues a new report. Conservative MP Elizabeth Truss, who produced the report for think tank CentreForum, suggests the regulation of childcare ought be simplified.
