Hunts: Countryside Alliance v League Against Cruel Sports

A senior cabinet minister has said he doubts whether MPs will be given a chance next year to overturn the ban on hunting with dogs in England and Wales.

The Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson told the Daily Telegraph there was no prospect of winning such a vote in 2013.

William Burton, from the Countryside Alliance, was confident a vote would be held in Parliament while Dawn Varley, from the League Against Cruel Sports, said cruelty needed to be taken out of hunting.
