HC Deb 11 May 1999 vol 331 c224 10.26 pm
Ms Julia Drown (South Swindon)

I am pleased to have this opportunity to present a petition of 258 signatures collected in one day in South Swindon. I agree with the petitioners that the hunting of wild mammals with dogs

is cruel and unnecessary and has no place in a modern Britain. The petition continues:

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons calls on the Government to act on the overwhelming mandate it has received from MPs and the public to end hunting by making a clear commitment by the year 2000 to legislate for its abolition. And the petitioners remain etc. To lie upon the Table.
