IN the last year before the next general election, there will be pressure on the Conservative Government to remove the ban on hunting, not just of foxes but deer and hares too.

It would be selfdestructive of it to do so with polls saying 82 per cent of the population want the ban kept.

We have written to our MP but invite others to do the same to theirs, to stress the ban on such cruelty to our wildlife must be kept.
