Judges to rule on 'unlawful' hunting ban claim

Hunt supporters will learn today whether the latest round of their legal challenge to the law that will outlaw their sport has been successful.
Three of the country's top judges will give their ruling on the Countryside Alliance's claim that the 1949 Parliament Act, which MPs used to introduce the Hunting Act after House of Lords opposition, is invalid.

The Hunting Act, which not only ends fox-hunting but also deer-hunting and hare-coursing with dogs, comes into force on Friday unless the Court of Appeal rules today that the legislation is flawed and unenforceable.
