The First Point - 164a

The United Kingdom Parliament
Thursday 16 January 2003 - [Mr. George Stevenson in the Chair]
Hunting Bill
Mr. Nicholas Soames (Mid-Sussex): I speak in support of the amendment of my hon. Friend the Member for North Wiltshire (Mr. Gray) and in support of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Harborough (Mr. Garnier). I stress very strongly that coursing, whether competitive or not, must be subject to the same properly formulated tests that are applied to other types of hunting if the legislation is to be consistent. Moreover, the principles of utility and cruelty or least suffering should be constructed in such a way that the legal approach to animal welfare is logical, consistent and universal. The Bill fails on every count.
