The 2004 Hunting Act bans the hunting of wild mammals as foxes, deers, hares and mink with dogs in England and Wales. David Cameron was willing to repeal this Act saying it had done nothing for animal welfare. It was one of his main promises to win a majority in the 2015 election. Cameron wrote in the Countryside Alliance magazine: “The Hunting Act has done nothing for animal welfare. A Conservative government will give parliament the opportunity to repeal the Hunting Act on a free vote, with a government bill in government time.” And added: “There is definitely a rural way of life which a born and bred Londoner might struggle to understand. I have always been a strong supporter of country sports. It is my firm belief that people should have the freedom to hunt, so I share the frustration that many people feel about the Hunting Act and the way it was brought in by the last government.” Fortunately, the ban wasn't revoked, but now the new government has to maintain its word. The new Prime Minister Theresa May must not revoke the ban.
