While ordinary hard working families in Coventry South are worried about falling incomes, insecure employment and cuts to public

services, this out of touch Tory Government have said that they want to bring back fox hunting. 

Despite the polls showing that the public do not want a return to fox hunting, the Prime Minister has revealed she intends to lift the ban. 

The Labour Party banned cruel blood sports in 1999 and implemented the Hunting Act in 2004. However, Theresa May would reverse the ban on fox hunting by holding a free vote on repealing the Act.

Jim Cunningham, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Coventry South, said:

“It’s a warped sense of priorities when Theresa May thinks the return of fox hunting is something the majority of people in this country would support.

“It is absolutely clear that the British public do not want to see a return to hunting with hounds. Voters in Coventry South want their elected politicians to concentrate on important issues like healthcare, public safety and jobs – not on bringing back cruel blood sports. 

“It just shows how utterly out of touch the Tories are that this is their priority. Only Labour can be trusted to fight for working people on the issues that matter. I’m asking everyone in Coventry South to sign Labour’s petition against bringing back fox hunting and send a clear message to the Tories.”
