Hunts “ready to repeal”

At the start of what could be the final season before the 2004 Hunting Act is repealed, the Countryside Alliance (CA) released the results of a survey which shows that the need for repeal is as important as ever.

The survey, which was sent to 300 hunts, showed that 93 per cent of respondents report that they have at least the same number of subscribers as before the Hunting Act came into force, and that 89 per cent of respondents say there is also an increase in support from their local communities since the Act.
