Shocking that Jeremy Hunt can not admit barbaric cruelty of fox hunting – Hayman

Sue Hayman, Labour’s Shadow Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary, responding to Jeremy Hunt repeatedly refusing to admit fox hunting is cruel, said:

“It is incredible and shocking that Jeremy Hunt, who aspires to be the next Prime Minister, can not bring himself to even acknowledge the barbaric cruelty of fox hunting.

“Once again it shows this Tory government’s lack of understanding and sincerity on issues of animal welfare.

“There is overwhelming support in both rural and urban areas for keeping the ban on fox hunting that Labour was proud to bring in and will strengthen in government.”
