Court rules on hunting ban challenge

Hunt supporters will learn today whether they have won their High Court battle to overturn the ban on hunting with dogs in England and Wales.
The Countryside Alliance is challenging the validity of the 1949 Parliament Act, which MPs in the House of Commons used to introduce the Hunting Act because of opposition from the House of Lords.

The centuries-old sport will be outlawed when the Hunting Act takes effect on February 18, unless the courts find the legislation legally flawed.
