I have been asked to present the petition of Mr. Kim Stallwood, a passionate animal welfare advocate, and some 4,000 of my constituents, bringing attention to proposals to bring back the barbaric blood sport of fox hunting. The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Hastings and Rye and others,

Declares that the petitioners believe that hunting with dogs is cruel; further declares that the Petitioners oppose the efforts of local Conservative Parliamentary Candidate Amber Rudd and the Conservative Party to have the ban repealed, further declares that the Petitioners support the Hunting Act 2004 and the Back the Ban campaign; and that the Petitioners support Michael Foster, MP for Hastings and Rye, in his campaign to keep hunting illegal.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons reject any proposal to legalise hunting with dogs.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
