Paterson cool on hunt ban

Paterson cool on hunt ban

A vote on lifting the ban on hunting with dogs may not happen in 2013, according to the Environment Secretary.

Owen Paterson insisted the Government still intended to have a free vote on the issue but did not want "to bring forward a vote we were going to lose".

Tory party Chair Grant Shapps backed Mr Patterson and said the Government probably wouldn't win a vote on the hunting ban.

"It makes sense to bring something forward if you think there’s chance of a parliamentary majority and at the moment there doesn’t appear to be one," he argued.

Tory MP Simon Hart downplayed the Environment Secretary's comments, arguing that Mr Patterson was simply commenting on what was "just a case of practicality".

Labour's Shadow Environment Secretary Mary Creagh said Mr Paterson's comments on repealing the hunting ban means he "has admitted the country has moved on".
