Letter: Town and country

PETER DOREY (letter, 5 March) wonders why there was not a Countryside March under the Tory party. If they had introduced a "Foster Bill" against hunting there might well have been.

I am sick to death of hearing the mantra "70 per cent of people support the ban". That means that 30 per cent do not. This a very large minority to have their views ridden over roughshod by Parliament on a matter which should be for individual conscience.

The Foster Bill has driven an ugly and unnecessary wedge between town and country to neither's benefit.
