Sir: Jack Cunningham, the Minister of Agriculture, has been quoted as suggesting that the foot packs in his constituency should be exempt from the proposed ban on hunting, apparently on the grounds that they exist for the eradication of foxes rather than for the pleasures of the chase.

Are we then to look forward to inspectors from his department descending on the hunts at intervals to ensure that none of their human participants are enjoying themselves?
