PMQs: Fox hunting ban question to David Cameron

David Cameron joked that "the only little red pests I pursue are in this House" when asked about the future of the fox hunting ban and Conservative pledges on a review of the law.

Labour MP John Spellar claimed the "out of touch" prime minister was set to repeal the ban. It has been illegal to use dogs to hunt animals in England and Wales since 2005, and in Scotland since 2002.

Conservative chairman Grant Shapps said last month that he agreed with Environment Secretary Owen Paterson that a free vote for MPs on lifting the ban would be defeated.
