Montgomeryshire MP Glyn Davies has backed a call by the Welsh Conservatives assembly leader for the Commons to hold a free vote on overturning the hunting ban.

Andrew RT Davies, leader of the Conservatives in the Welsh Assembly, has called on his Westminster colleagues to deliver their promise to hold a free vote on overturning the fox hunting ban.

He said he expected the UK government to honour its coalition agreement pledge.

Tory MPs are divided on the issue, despite it being a part of the party’s 2010 general election manifesto.

Fox hunters make me sick.

Getting your kicks from seeing small animals torn to pieces without a chance.

Why not try and bring back cock fighting you sick bunch of perverts.

It was only a matter of time before the Conservative country cretins, crawled from under their stones to bring this back into the public arena.

Let's let sleeping dogs(foxes)lie. We're well into the 21st century not the 17th, the public requested this ban and i for one, don't want to see it lifted.

mr t blare

do we as a coutry not have more important issues to discuss other than the hunting bill ? i seem to remember that being the conservative line the last time it was raised.

Don't we have bigger things to worry about than whether or not a few aristos can go out and slaughter poor innocent foxes?

Obviously the welsh government have no un employment, no financial issue and no unrest or surely they would not be asking for a return to the dark ages . It's a poor reflection on a party when the welsh leader is so out of touch with the voters.

Yes bring back fox hunting, maybe bear baiting and children up chimneys.

For what possible reason would you want to watch an animals torn apart by another animal, thanks G-d 80% of the population don't agree and now as the new conservatives find their voice we see they too agree.

Maybe the welsh leader would like to tarmac wales and be done with all the wildlife.

Mike Smith

Can we please also overturn the ban on burgling and looting?

Instead of these pieces of legislation we could introduce a ban on out of touch AMs and MPs who are not worrying about the fact that we are plunging into another recession caused by over-zealous government cuts.

76% of the British public said they opposed foxhunting and didn't want to see a repeal in the last MORI polls (2010). Doesn't this matter to the Tory government? I think some of them need to get a better grasp of the meaning of the word democracy.

Makes me wonder where this man's brains are. If the local hunt collects the carcasses of dead animals for their hounds, what's to stop this practice if the hunt stops pursuing foxes and does drag hunting instead. The dogs still need feeding whatever. These pro-hunters always have such a feeble reason for keeping hunting.

Gosh I am impressed with the quality of thought and obvious knowledge that has gone into these responses and not just trotting out the same old trite to stir up public reaction, hmmm.

There is obviously a well educated and intelligent audiance out there (somewhere).
