Potential British Prime Minister Jeremy Hunt supports vote to allow fox hunting
Jeremy Hunt, one of two men who could be the next UK Prime Minister, says he would potentially support a vote to repeal the fox hunting ban.
The Foreign Secretary is currently in the running against Boris Johnson to become the next leader of the Conservative Party and therefore Prime Minister.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph Hunt said it was part of the UK’s “heritage”:
“As soon as there was a majority of parliament that would be likely to repeal the foxhunting ban, then I would support a vote in parliament.
“I would vote to repeal the ban on foxhunting.
“I don’t hunt myself. It’s not particularly my thing … [but] I think we have to recognise that, in terms of the balance of the countryside, it’s part of our heritage. So personally I’m happy for people to do it.”
