Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has reaffirmed his support for the Hunting Act 2004, which banned hunting with dogs.
Mike is a strong supporter of animal welfare and has pledged to vote against any attempt to repeal the Hunting Act. Mike has consistently voted in favour of animal rights and has supported a number of campaigns for better treatment of animals in the UK.
Commenting, Mike said: “My support of the ban on hunting with dogs has been unwavering – it’s cruel and should stay banned. Despite recent speculation, the Government has said they have absolutely no plans to put a vote on the matter to Parliament. I am pleased that there just doesn’t appear to be large support to overturn a ban.”
