Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with Dogs: Prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: Two thousand mink were released from a fur farm in Onneley, and they tramped all over my constituency, damaging wildlife, cats, ducks and everything else around. The endangered species charity Tusk Force warned that 94 per cent. of water vole nesting sites would have disappeared by 2000 due to habitat degeneration and predators. There can be academic theories, but people who study endangered...

Mrs Llin Golding: A Labour party member told me at lunch time that he goes lamping and uses a .243 rifle, which is the sort that killed Kennedy. He questioned whether we really wanted people with such high-powered rifles going about the countryside so that foxes can be killed cleanly.

Mrs Llin Golding: They are disturbed by the mink.

Mrs Llin Golding: My hon. Friend has just said that he considers rodent control to be important. Is he saying that control of rabbits and mink is not important?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: The Government introduced legislation to control the use of guns, yet the Bill encourages the use of guns in the countryside. If one goes rabbiting, one has to take a gun.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: One is just as dead if one is shot by a handgun as by any other kind of gun. It is strange to control something with one piece of legislation, then introduce another piece of legislation that encourages it.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: I shall first deal with the question of rabbits. A friend of mine, and a member of the Labour party executive, frequently goes rabbiting and uses the rabbits to feed his dogs. When I explained to him that he would no longer be able to go rabbiting unless he took a gun, he said that, although he did shoot, he would not like to do that. He asked why he would need to take a gun. I explained that...

Mrs Llin Golding: I am afraid that I do not have much contact with the Labour party National Executive. I was referring to a member of my constituency executive. The next campaign of the League Against Cruel Sports is to ban guns.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: Well, fishing as well, but guns first. I told my friend that if that organisation should get its way, he would not even be able to take his gun when he went rabbiting. I understand that, on Tuesday, there was some debate about whether the LACS did have such an intention, but I have here a national petition that it has organised, asking for all guns to be banned.

Mrs Llin Golding: If one casts a fly on the water one will often get a fish to rise.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: I am still replying to my hon. Friend. He is assuming that the League Against Cruel Sports is logical. It is not. It is working down the line, and I am convinced that it will go for shooting next, then fishing. I have here the petition from LACS, which asks people to return it to them at an address that is difficult to read—I think that it is in Union street, somewhere in London.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: Yes, somewhere or other. My hon. Friend the Member for West Ham is welcome to have a copy of the petition.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: It says: How many more people have to die before all guns are banned? How much more wildlife will be lost before all guns are banned? How many more tons of toxic lead shot will be spread over our countryside before all guns are banned? So where is its logic in saying that foxes should be shot?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: Lead is banned for fishermen; they no longer use it.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: It would have been. I return to my favourite subject: mink. The Burns report says that mink hunting does not have a sufficient effect—

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: Significant effect, thank you. The report says that hunting does not have a significant effect on the population of mink in the countryside. No, it does not. However, at least those who hunt are trying to do something about it. If they are banned from doing so, many more mink will be running around and breeding. Mink have no natural predators other than man, and unless man does something...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (25 Ion 2001)

Mrs Llin Golding: I agree with many of the hon. Gentleman's comments. The banning of mink hunts is unconnected to conservation. In fact, it encourages mink to reproduce and destroy many indigenous species. On the fishing question, there is no way in which to trap mink in an estuary because its tidal waters will drown them. We have had many floods this year, so if traps had been set, they would have drowned...
