Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Sutton and Cheam, Emily Brothers has reinforced her commitment to safeguard foxes from hunting with dogs. Speaking today on the tenth anniversary since the Hunting Act came into force, Ms Brothers said:
“The Labour Party has a long and proud tradition of protecting and improving the rights of animals. It was ten years ago today (Tuesday 18 November 2004) that the Labour Party finally ended the cruel and inexcusable practice of hunting with dogs.
“Unfortunately, David Cameron and the Tories are determined to open up the debate again. The current Secretary of State for the Environment Food and Rural Affairs, Liz Truss, recently said that the Hunting Act was a ‘mistake’ and that she would ‘vote for a repeal’.
“The Labour Party are clear that with Britain facing a cost of living crisis, this Tory obsession to hold another vote in Parliament shows just out of touch they are with people’s day to day lives. The Hunting Act remains one of Labour’s proudest achievements and is widely supported across the country.”
