Letter: Poisoned hounds

Sir: Fran Abrams has it wrong about Michael Foster, Labour MP for Worcester ("Maiden speeches that came top of the class", 22 December). He declared his anti-hunting bill some weeks after he came first in the ballot for private members' bills, not before.

This was after he asked his constituents to write in with their wishes, and the vast majority of respondents requested an anti-hunting bill.
