Lord Faulkner of Worcester (Labour)
This was someone who was at the Waterloo Cup and no one has denied that it happened. Perhaps I may read the quotation.
"It's not illegal but it is immoral. One day I sat down and thought about it and I just couldn't do it any more.
"The captured hares are released on to land that is unfamiliar to them, they don't have any runs and they're so scared it's impossible for them to find an escape route. It's like me being taken from my house, being blindfolded, driven a hundred miles away and then dumped, being chased".
That strikes me as being a barbaric sport which there is no need for us to continue.
