Hunting: Public Hearings Scheduled

Details were announced last week of public hearings into hunting with hounds as part of the Government's consultation on a possible ban.

The three-day hearings at Westminster, on September 9-11th., will open with evidence from Lord Burns, who chaired the committee of inquiry into hunting with dogs. The committee's findings will form the basis for the discussions.
