Hunting Act 2004 (Reintroduction) Act 2017 (Amended for Division), Quamquam123 MP

Hunting Act 2004 (Reintroduction) Bill 2017 (Amended for Divison)
An Act to reintroduce the Hunting Act of 2004.




BE IT ENACTED by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

1: Repeal
(1) Hunting Act 2004 is hereby reintroduced.

2: Extent, Commencement and Short Title
(1) This Act extends to the United Kingdom.
(2) The provisions of this Act come into force immediately following Royal Assent.
(3) This Act may be cited as the Hunting Act 2004 (Reintroduction) Act 2017.



Notes

The Hunting Act of 2004 was a victory in the protection of animal rights and in the advancement of a civilised society. Among other things, it made it an offence to hunt a wild mammal with a dog, a barbaric and savage sport. Sadly however, this piece of legislation was repealed in 2016 by a repeal act. The hunting of animals in this way is a disgraceful attack on animal rights and this piece of legislation stands up for the native animals of our country against the elite who partake in such activities for their own sadistic enjoyment.

I have amended this bill for Division so that instead of repealing a repeal bill, it simply reinstates the original 2004 Hunting Act.

1. When an item is posted to division, it posts then prompts me to make a poll; you will find this with any poll on TSR, the poll appears a minute or 2 after the thread

2. You will also find based on any bill sent to division that the B is omitted. Amendments are VA, motions VM but a bill is simply V

Is there any precedent for being able to say "this thing now exists" without explicitly sating, at least the clone of the brexit bill actually had the text

And what a surprise, still no justification is given, but then class warfare never does get justification.

What people do on their own property is none of the government's concern, particularly if they're engaging in what often amounts to pest control.

I won't pretend I enjoy the thought of badger's getting killed though. I adore them.

There's no precedent for this specific thing, but there are plenty of precedents for text being incorporated into legislation by reference, which is essentially what this does.

There's no explanation.

I don't agree with the government telling people what to do on their own properties as aforementioned. I will be voting against this bill.

I've still yet to hear a convincing argument as to why it's acceptable to kill over eight billion animals each year in the UK, but we need to draw the line at some people entertaining themselves by hunting foxes. Neigh.

BEcause poor people apparently NEED to eat animals, but rich people, well, must do everything possible to stop them being able to have a nice day out, who cares if it isn't actually the preserve of the rich.

Which is just nonsense. Nobody needs to eat animals and in fact the vast majority of us eat far more of them than is ideal either for the environment or our own health.

Exactly.

Meat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, elevenses, occasionally I forgo it when having supper. Literally one of the first things I do in the morning and one of the last things as night I do is eat meat, definitely don't need to worry about overall protein deficiencies

My biggest sin is that I regularly roll out of bed so late that I lack the time to fry bacon, but other than that I'm much the same

Pretty much all of my experience with badgers has been dead ones on the side of the road during culling season, so badgers are nasty verminous creatures like foxes and rabbits in my mind.

I admire their temperament. European Badgers are quite chill around humans, and are largely indifferent to our presence. If you try and mess with them, they'll take it until they become convinced that you're out to kill them. Then they go ballistic and it's pretty hard to fight them off because they're super durable. Tough, loose skin, sharp teeth, quite well-built with a low centre of gravity.

As I say, I do like badgers.

I'm sure an elephant gun would deal with them easy enough
